OCCI and the ONE Cloud

November 23rd, 2009 • Comments Off on OCCI and the ONE Cloud

The guys from OpenNebula made a great announcement on the OCCI mailing list:

Dear OCCI members,

The OpenNebula team is proud to announce the dawn of the OpenNebula Cloud.
Although this can be shortened to ONE Cloud, it is in fact two, although
both of them are accesible using two interfaces: OCCI and EC2.

  * Dummy cloud. This cloud offers an interface to an OpenNebual instance
configured using dummy drivers. This means that it will offer a seemingly
infinite capacity to run VMs, but it actually won't ever run any VM
instance. This 'dummy' cloud is offered to test the OCCI and EC2 interfaces

  * Real cloud. The OpenNebula instance that supports this clouds has access
to physical server, and will offer the possibility of configure virtual
networks, launching real VMs and access them using public IPs. This 'real'
cloud VMs will have a limited capacity and is not meant to provide VMs on
demand for personal uses, but rather to test OpenNebula cloud functionality.

The aim of these clouds is to allow for interface testing and foster the
creation of an ecosystem built on top of OpenNebula clouds.

More information on configuration of the clients and usage of the two clouds
can be found here [1].

Best regards,

   The OpenNebula Team
