Event description


OpenNebula Fundamentals: Cloud Operator and Architect Course


The course covers the process of installing, configuring and operating enterprise clouds and virtualized data centers using OpenNebula. Additionally the program addresses advanced topics and provides a very brief introduction to integration of OpenNebula with other components in the data center. This is an interactive course, where the attendees operate on their own labs with a 3-node OpenNebula cloud, which are provided during the course.

OpenNebula provides an abstraction layer on top of the infrastructure and technologies deployed in the datacenter. In order for the attendees to get the best understanding possible of OpenNebula as a whole, the labs used during the course make use of the most common open-source technologies that can be used to deploy an OpenNebula cloud. For example, the hypervisor technology used during the course will be KVM, shared file-system for storage, and regular linux bridges and linux firewall for networking. Other technologies supported by OpenNebula will be addressed and discussed as well. For example, there is an entire topic devoted to using vCenter as the hypervisor.


Specifically designed for:

  • IT Administrators
  • Data Center Staff
  • System Administrators
  • Systems Integrators
  • System Architects.

Hands-on Labs

Attendees are grouped into groups of one or two people. Each group receives a lab, consisting of one OpenNebula frontend node and two hypervisors, accesible through SSH. Attendees are the owners and administrators of their labs. They are able to launch virtual machine, make any configuration changes, debug any problems, access the GUI and the CLI.




16 hours in 2 days, starting at 9:00 on the first day and ending at 18:00 on the last day. Schedule

  • Day 1: 9:00 - 18:00
  • Day 2: 9:00 - 18:00

Skills Gained

  • Describe the features and benefits of using virtualization and clouds
  • Describe different architectures for a cloud that can be deployed with OpenNebula
  • Deploy and configure OpenNebula
  • Operate an OpenNebula cloud instance


No prior OpenNebula skills are required, but participants should have working knowledge of virtualization, networking and Unix/Linux systems.


The instructor will rely on a set of PDF documents that will be explained throughout the course. These documents will be made available to the attendees right at the very beginning of the course. Attendees need a laptop to connect to their hands-ons labs.


Standard price is 1,250 euros (exclusive of tax) with discounts for early registration and for public institutions, customers and partners.
