Extended OpenStack and OpenNebula Functionalities
- Improved scheduling for allocation of resources by popular open source Cloud platforms, i.e. OpenStack and OpenNebula.
- Enhancements will address both better scheduling algorithms and support for spot-instances.
- We will also support dynamic partitioning of resources among “traditional batch systems” and Cloud infrastructures (for some LRMS).
- Support for standards in IaaS resource orchestration engines through the use of the TOSCA standard.
- This overcomes the portability and usability problem that ways of orchestrating resources in Cloud computing frameworks widely differ among each other.
- Improved IaaS orchestration capabilities for popular open source Cloud platforms, i.e. OpenStack and OpenNebula.
- Enhancements will include the development of custom TOSCA templates to facilitate resource orchestration for end users, increased scalability of deployed resources and support of orchestration capabilities for OpenNebula.
- OpenStack support for INDIGO developments (AAI, preemptible instances, etc.)
- Docker driver for OpenStack Nova
- Heat-Translator tool is aimed to translate non-heat templates to OpenStack Heat Orchestration Template (HOT)
- Docker support for OpenNebula
- Sync between INDIGO Docker-hub, ONEDock and nova-docker
- OpenStack Client & Nova Client
