Where OpenNebula is typically used by system administrators to manage data centers, SURFsara’s HPC Cloud exposes OpenNebula’s web interface crudely to end users. SURFsara’s end users are researchers. They all have diverse needs and most of them are no system experts. It turns out that OpenNebula’s interface is easy enough to use, enabling researchers to build complex compute infrastructures for their analysis workflows. This presentation discusses the features our researchers and we appreciate in OpenNebula, it pictures a selection of succesful projects and it also explains caveats we have come across while keeping the service in the air.
