MADRID, December 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

C12G Labs, the company behind the OpenNebula Project, is happy to announce the
availability of the OpenNebula Sandbox for Amazon EC2. OpenNebula is a
widely-deployed open-source management solution for enterprise data center
virtualization and private cloud computing that implements the Amazon EC2
interface. With the new Sandbox you can deploy in a single click an
AWS-compatible OpenNebula nested cloud on Amazon EC2, where you can launch
virtual machines within an Amazon instance.

The OpenNebula Sandbox is a CentOS 6.3 virtual machine appliance with a
pre-configured automated installation of OpenNebula 3.8, a virtualization node
using emulation (QEMU) ready to execute virtual machines, and prepared images
to offer a feature rich cloud experience. Users are able to log into the
OpenNebula cloud, monitor the managed resources, and launch instances of
virtual machines without the hassle of configuring a physical infrastructure.

The Sandbox provides a fast and easy way for cloud trainers to teach
OpenNebula, for cloud builders and operators to evaluate OpenNebula, and for
developers to test their integrations against a real controlled OpenNebula
environment. It is not intended for production environments due to the
overhead in the hardware emulation. However the OpenNebula innovative
functionality for cloudbursting opens the possibility of using the OpenNebula
Sandbox as an Amazon-hosted broker to orchestrate and aggregate different
Amazon availability zones.

OpenNebula Sandbox is part of a new program created by C12G Labs that aims to
provide different tools and guides to eliminate the challenges of implementing
a small-scale OpenNebula cloud for development, testing or integration. The
Sandbox is also available for VirtualBox, KVM, and VMware.
