Welcome and Project Update
We've made our way into the world of open cloud — where each organization can find the right cloud for its unique needs. A single cloud management platform cannot be all things to all people. There will be a cloud space with several offerings focused on different environments and/or industries. The OpenNebula commitment to the open cloud is at the very base of its mission — to become the simplest cloud enabling platform — and its purpose — to bring simplicity to the private and hybrid enterprise cloud. OpenNebula exists to help companies build simple, cost-effective, reliable, open enterprise clouds on existing IT infrastructure. The OpenNebula Conference will be a great opportunity to communicate and share our vision and commitment, to look back at how the project has grown in the last 9 years, and to shed some insight into what to expect from the project in the near future.

Building Virtual Environments for Security Analyses of Complex Networked Systems
Computer networks are undergoing a phenomenal growth, driven by the rapidly increasing number of nodes constituting the networks. At the same time, the number of security threats on Internet and intranet networks is constantly increasing, and the testing and experimentation of cyber defense solutions require the availability of separate, test environments that best reflect the complexity of a real system. Such environments support the deployment and monitoring of complex mission-driven network scenarios, and cyber security training activities, thus enabling enterprises to study cyber defense strategies and allowing security researchers to evaluate their algorithms at scale.

The main objective is delivering to researchers and practitioners an overview of the technological means and the practical steps to setup a private cloud platform based on OpenNebula for the creation and management of virtual environments that support cyber-security activities of training and testing, as well as an overview of its possible applications in the cyber security domain.

In particular:

1. We describe our infrastructure based on OpenNebula
2. We overview our application, sitting on top of OpenNebula, as well as the technological tools involved in the management of its lifecycle (e.g., Ansible)
3. We show how the platform can support various examples of security research activities

Nested Virtualization with OpenNebula: A Practical Approach
In this talk, StorPool will present the concept of nested virtualization and PCI pass-through. Nested virtualization is when you have virtual machines running inside other virtual machines. If done right, nested virtualization is extremely suitable for testing large virtualized environments, without the need for having hundreds of physical servers.

This approach empowers system administrators by reducing the time and effort needed to run/test multiple dynamic environments. This is done by having easier automation/provisioning, API control and much more. In a nested virtualization solution, the physical hardware is sliced and diced fast and easy, which gives you a large set of opportunities to experiment without the need for huge investments in physical hardware or time and effort needed to reinstall/set-up software.

Join this talk to learn more about why and how to do nested virtualization with OpenNebula and achieve an inception moment of having virtual machines, inside virtual machines, inside virtual machines…

Performant and Resilient Storage the Open Source & Linux way
OpenNebula users have a range of storage options available to them, including proprietary appliances, proprietary software and Open Source software projects. This session will present a fully Open Source approach, that tightly integrates with Linux, and makes full use of the mature building blocks within the Linux kernel (LVM, Software RAID, DM-crypt, NVMe-oF Target, DRBD, etc...), and delivers one of the highest performance open source storage stacks currently available.

The core goal is to expose the improved performance of NVMe storage devices to VMs and containers. The solution covers both local NVMe drives and NVMe-oF. For interacting with NVMe-oF targets it supports the Swordfish-API and LVM & Linux’s software NVMe-oF target. The solution contains a storage addon for OpenNebula.

Image backups in OpenNebula
Our take on centralized and controlled VM image backups that deal with both CEPH and local QCOW2 datastores. As there are no default means of executing image backups in OpenNebula, I'd like to share our perspective on how we do it.

A Cloud VDI Infrastructure in just 30 minutes with NodeWeaver, Packet & UDS Enterprise
VDI is usually associated with large, complex and costly infrastructures. But OpenNebula allows anyone to create a private cloud that can provide VDI services easily and with zero maintenance. We will show how NodeWeaver and UDS can create infrastructures of any scale in minutes, using Packet as a deployment platform - from bare metal to full infrastructure in just a few minutes.
