OpenNebula Screencasts

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.

OpenNebula 4.4

Cloud Bursting

OpenNebula 4.4 brings enhancements to the EC2 cloud bursting drivers. This screencast showcases the basic usage of this functionality.

Amazon EC2 and EBS APIs

This screencast shows how to manage your virtual resources using the EC2 cloud interface.

OpenNebula 4.2

Sunstone Self-Service Cloud View

The Cloud view is one of the configurable Sunstone views. This simplified view is intended for cloud consumers that just require a portal where they can provision new virtual machines easily. They just have to select one of the available templates and the operating system that will run in this virtual machine.

OneFlow Multi-VM Application Deployment

Thanks to the OneFlow component introduced in OpenNebula 4.2, related virtual machines can be grouped into a Service. A Service can define deployment dependencies, as shown in this screencast.

OneFlow Application Auto-Scaling

This screencast shows the OpenNebula Auto-Scaling features. A Service (group of interconnected VMs) can adjust the number of VMs based on performance metrics, or based on a schedule.

OpenNebula 4.0

New Sunstone

This screencast is an overview of the revamped Sunstone web interface.

Sunstone Views

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.

VM Capacity Resize

This screencast shows how to resize the CPU and Memory of VMs instances.

Scheduled Actions

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.

VM Snapshotting

This screencast shows the ability to take VM snapshots. A snapshot will contain the current disks and memory state.

OpenNebula 3.8

Marketplace integration with Sunstone

This screencast shows how easy is to import an appliance from the OpenNebula Marketplace to your local infrastructure using Sunstone.

OpenNebula 3.4

Bootstrapping and Creating a VM from Scratch

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.

OpenNebula 3.2

Self Service: The OpenNebula Web Interface for Cloud Users

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.

OpenNebula 3.0

Zones (part 1): The Web Interface for Multi-zone Clouds

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.

VDCs (part 2): The Web Interface for Multi-zone Clouds

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.

Sunstone: The OpenNebula Web Interface for Cloud Operators

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.
