This talk wants to introduce you to Synnefo, an open source, scalable and production ready cloud stack. It consists of a vm management layer which is google ganeti and is essentially a cluster manager and delivers an integrated management of compute, network and storage. It also runs on of the shelf hardware and delivers live migration without or with shared storage.
Synnefo is the orchestration and presentation layer which talks to ganeti via an API. To the users it presents a simple web UI and also exposes an openstack compatible API for automation called cyclades.
Also it is possible to do flexible, L2 isolated networking.
Also it provides a “dropbox” like storage services called pithos. It features a sync client for different platforms and a web UI.
Synnefo offers all the benefits of an amazon like cloud but is geared towards persistent virtual machines. Also it is perfect as a replacement of the traditional virtualization stack and is easy to setup and use.
