VANGELIS KOUKIS, CONSTANTINOS VENETSANOPOULOS,AND NECTARIOS KOZIRIS
In this article, we describe Synnefo’s overall architecture, its interaction with Ganeti, and the benefits of decoupling the cloud from the cluster layer. We focus on Synnefo’s handling of files, images, and VM volumes in an integrated way and discuss advantages when choosing Synnefo to deliver a private or public cloud. We conclude with our experiences from running a real-world production deployment on Synnefo.
