Cloud Computing Platform

Cloud Computing Platform

Cloud computing is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources are provided as a service over the Internet. OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.

OMNICloud in OMNILab is an IaaS ( Infrastructure as a service) platform. Our researchers deploy a Icehouse Version OpenStack Platform for supporting us to do researching computation, service backup, and various project prototypes and so on. The platform is constructed based on six physical servers. In this architecture, one controller node is used to control the whole platform and four computing nodes for computing. We also have one network node and make two l3 agents for providing both internal and external IP service. The operating system mirrors are hosted on a reliable NFS-based storage to gain high flexibility and efficiency.

随着互联网技术的飞速发展,大数据和云计算技术已经变成了当下最为热门的前沿技术。云计算(cloud computing)是基于互联网的相关服务的增加、使用和交付模式,通常涉及通过互联网来提供动态易扩展且经常是虚拟化的资源。OpenStack是一 个云操作系统,通过数据中心,用来进行大量的计算、存储和网络资源的分配,通过一个操作控制台,能够有效地对提供的各种资源进行利用。
自实验室成 立以来,OMNILab的研究人员,就致力于在数据分析和云计算等前沿科技方面的研究。OMNICloud是一个IaaS平台,我们的研究人员部署了一个 Icehouse版本的OpenStack平台,为我们实验室研究人员用以提供基础服务,诸如计算、例程等。我们的平台总共采用了6台服务器。在这些服务 器当中,有一个控制节点,用作对于整个平台的控制,还有4个计算节点,用以提供虚机服务,还有1个网络节点,然后并且部署了2个l3 agent用以提供内部和外部ip的服务。并且使用了NFS作为贡献存储,提供存储的高可用性。
