After configuring the OpenNebula Front-end and the vCenter nodes, it’s time to learn more about the storage drivers and configure the storage model over VMware.

The vCenter storage drivers are in charge of copying images (in VMDK format) to and from the images and system datastores.

How Should I Read This Chapter

You should be reading this chapter after performing the vCenter node install.

This chapter is organized in the Datastore Setup Section, which introduces the concepts of OpenNebula datastores as related to vCenter datastores, and there is a guide on how to migrate images to and from other types of datastores, with other formats converting nicely to vmdk.

After this section, you can proceed to the Networking section to learn about and configure these aspects of your cloud.

Hypervisor Compatibility

All this chapter applies exclusively to vCenter hypervisor.
