Deploying an Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (Live Demonstration)

In this presentation/workshop, using the (free) Ubuntu Server CD and two laptops we will demonstrate the ease of deploying an Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC) in less than 20 minutes!

With Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud organizations can experience the benefits of cloud computing within their own servers running virtual machines: to deploy workloads and have them running immediately; to grow or
shrink computing capacity to meet the needs of a demanding application, etc. UEC offers the same APIs as the dominant public cloud offering, Amazon EC2, and so applications can be built to run on either platform, therefore offering a (theoretically) infinite expansion potential. In this presentation/workshop attendants will learn about the UEC, Eucalyptus, Cloud topologies, the installation process, registering nodes, running and terminating instances in the Cloud, and the UEC Image Store. Cloud computing is here to stay, and Linux is a platform which readily offers the ability to construct private clouds that any organization can take advantage of deploying today!

If time permits we will also present examples of utilizing UEC, already deployed in the Department of Financial and Management Engineering of the University of the Aegean. In particular we will demonstrate our deployment of StarCluster (a utility originally created in MIT for managing general purpose computing clusters hosted on Amazon’s EC2) in order to make it compatible with UEC. StarCluster minimizes the administrative overhead associated with obtaining, configuring, and managing a traditional computing cluster used in research labs or for general distributed computing applications. Our modification of StarCluster completely automates the process of creating a high performance computing cluster on UEC. This involves
requesting virtual machines from the UEC server, configuring the cluster with Sun Grid Engine, OpenMPI, passwordless SSH, NFS shared /opt directories, EBS /home volumes, and ~60GB of /scratch space.
