Using Zabbix to monitor our OpenNebula private cloud infrastructure

The Flemish Department of Environment and Spatial Planning (https://omgeving.vlaanderen.be) takes care of policy-making for spatial planning, environmental and building permits, impact assessments, and environmental regulation enforcement. In 2016 the organization decided to migrate its private cloud infrastructure from VMware to an open source solution, adopting OpenNebula as the new cloud management platform, and Ceph as the underlying object storage system. Nowadays, this infrastructure supports the work of a team of more than 50 developers, the management of a HA dual datacenter setup with two availability zones per datacenter, and the automation of the life cycle of over 2200 virtual machines—including more than 500 deployments per week. In this presentation, we will explain the key role that Zabbix plays in our core data centers as the open source monitoring tool of choice for our corporate private cloud.
