Description about the presentation

The Infrastructure Manager (IM) is a framework that eases the access and the usability of IaaS clouds by automating the VMI selection, deployment, configuration, software installation, monitoring and update of Virtual Appliances. It supports APIs from a large number of virtual platforms, making user applications cloud-agnostic. In addition it integrates a contextualization system to enable the installation and configuration of all the user required applications providing the user with a fully functional infrastructure. It is a service that features a web-based GUI, a XML-RPC API, a REST API and a command-line application.

IM has been developed by the Grid and High Performance Computing Group (GRyCAP) at the Instituto de Instrumentación para Imagen Molecular (I3M) from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV).

In this webinar Miguel will present how end-users can deploy complex and customized virtual infrastructures on top of IaaS Cloud deployments (such as AWS, OpenStack, EGI FedCloud, etc.).
