We have created a series of screencasts to illustrate the most improtant features of OpenNebula. Please see that some of the screencasts do not show the latest version of OpenNebula and so the latest features of the technology.
This screencast is an overview of the revamped Sunstone web interface.
Using the new OpenNebula Sunstone Views you will be able to provide a simplified UI aimed at end-users of an OpenNebula cloud. The OpenNebula Sunstone Views are fully customizable, and can be also used to provide a different level of complexity for each kind of users of your cloud.
This screencast shows the default administrator and user view, and an example of extreme simplification where users only have buttons to deploy and shutdown the VMs provided by the administrator.
This screencast shows how to resize the CPU and Memory of VMs instances.
This screencast demonstrates the scheduled actions feature. In the example shown, a VM is prepared to be suspended for the weekend and then resumed on Monday.
This screencast shows the ability to take VM snapshots. A snapshot will contain the current disks and memory state.
This screencast shows how easy is to import an appliance from the OpenNebula Marketplace to your local infrastructure using Sunstone.
The screencast starts with a pristine installation of OpenNebula 3.4, bootstraps the virtual infrastructure, and creates a new VM from scratch using OpenNebula's Sunstone. More details in this blog post.
You can also download the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) VM that was created during the screencast from http://appliances.c12g.com/ubuntu-server-12.04/
This screencast demonstrates the new easily-customizable self-service portal for cloud consumers. Its aim is to offer a simplified access to shared infrastructure for non-IT end users. The screencast shows how to create a virtual network, how to upload an image, and how to launch virtual machines using them.
This screencast shows the ability of the oZones component to manage several instances (zones) of OpenNebula, potentially hosted within the same data center to enhance isolation, scalability and performance, or in different data centers to build a geographically distributed multi-site cloud. The oZones server offers a single access point, and centralized management and monitoring, for multiple zones, providing the ability to show their aggregated resources: templates, images, users, virtual machines, virtual networks and hosts.
This screencast shows how to manage and use Virtual Data Centers, both with the oZones CLI and with the oZones web-based interface, to isolate virtual infrastructure environments within an OpenNebula zone. It shows how to create a VDC by assigning a group of users to a group of physical resources and by granting one of the users, the VDC administrator, with privileges to manage all virtual resources in the VDC. The users in the VDC, including the VDC administrator, only see the virtual resources and not the underlying physical infrastructure, and can create and manage virtual compute, storage and networking capacity.
This screencast demonstrates how easy it is to register new Images, create Templates, instantiate Virtual Machines from those Templates and accessing them through the embedded VNC. In addition it provides an overview of Sunstone and it’s major features, like the Dashboard, where you’ll see the current status of your cloud, the detailed information panel for each resource and the real-time update of resources and the Dashboard.
