What does it takes to bring innovations like private clouds to small and medium enterprises? In the course of this talk we will present our experience in creating a self-service toolkit for creating a complete virtualization and cloud platform based on OpenNebula, as well as our experience gathered in tens of installations of all sizes. From scalable storage (with benchmarks!) to autonomic optimization, we will present what in our view is needed to bring private clouds to everyone, what components and additions we created to better solve our customers’ problems (from replacing industrial control systems to medium scale virtual desktop infrastructures), and why OpenNebula has been chosen over other competing cloud toolkits.
