We are proud to inform you, that MTA SZTAKI appears again in the acknowledgement section of the latest version of OpenNebula v4.0.
As you all may know, our collegues contribute to the OpenNebula develpoment more and more since the institute has started to work on the SZTAKI Cloud project. After the project members agreed that an OpenNebula based system is the best solution to achieve the amis of the project, they figured out that the solutions they give for the special scenarios can be useful in other situations as well, so they continually return these solutions to the OpenNebula team - and most of their source codes are part of the recent OpenNebula versions.
This time not only the MTA SZTAKI is listed on the acknowledgement section, but a few colleagues are mentioned by name: Márk Gergely (LPDS), Mihály Héder (ITAK) and Tamás Marlok (ITAK).
Dear guys, Congratulations on your achievements!
The tutorial video is available from the SZTAKI videotorium at http://sztaki.videotorium.hu/hu/recordings/details/6396,SZTAKI_Felho_Workshop
A very successful SZTAKI Cloud tutorial was held at MTA SZTAKI on 17 April 2013. As a result of the new beta release of the SZTAKI Cloud infrastructure the developers organised a tutorial to introduce the SZTAKI Cloud features to future users.
The half day tutorial included presentations about the project background and examples of usage in several laboratories in MTA SZTAKI. The audience could learn more about how to gain rights to be able to use the cloud system and also learned the basics of the usage from two points of view: as a user and as an administrator.
The SZTAKI Cloud project has started today.
The project has two main goals. The first is the research on clouds as distributed computing systems and the second is to develop and to deploy an institutional cloud infrastructure based on the results of first goal that allows the significant improvement of the local IT infrastructure. This new cloud based infrastructure will be significantly more effective and more cost efficient than the former infrastructure built on traditional conceptions and individual specific servers. This new improved institutional infrastructure could even be the first milestone in a global academic paradigm shift.
A cloud can provide an automatic resource allocation mechanism for a service or for an IT system in case of the allocated resources are running out. The SZTAKI departments ILAB (Informatics Laboratory), ITAC (Internet Technologies and Applications Center), DSD (Department of Distributed Systems), and LPDS (Laboratory of Parallel and Distributed Systems) intend to exploit this capability of cloud:
Furthermore, the WS-PGRADE/gUSE Portal would be an underlying solution to establish a PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) based platform service. With the help of this SZTAKI platform, researchers can use flexibly scalable clusters established in the cloud to solve processor-intensive issues. The access to the cloud will be supported by the ITAC framework that is successfully able to establish VOs (Virtual Organizations).
