Appliances and MarketplacesΒΆ

OpenNebula Marketplaces provide a simple way to integrate your cloud with popular application/image providers. Think of them as external datastores.

A Marketplace can be:

  • Public: accessible universally by all OpenNebula installations.

  • Private: local within an organization and specific for a single OpenNebula (a single zone) or shared by a federation (a collection of zones). If you are interested in setting up your own private Marketplace, please follow this guide.

A Marketplace stores Marketplace Appliances. A MarketPlace Appliance includes one or more Images and, possibly, some associated metadata like VM Templates or OpenNebula Multi-VM service definitions.
