miniONE is an easy to use deployment tool to build an evaluation OpenNebula cloud based on virtual machines (KVM). All necessary components to manage and run the virtual machines are installed and configured on your dedicated system with just a single command run.

Follow the detailed tutorial.


You’ll need a server (physical or virtual) to try out OpenNebula. The provided Host should have a fresh default installation of the required operating system with the latest updates and without any customizations.

  • 4 GiB RAM
  • 20 GiB free space on disk
  • privileged user access (root)
  • openssh-server package installed
  • operating system: CentOS 7 or 8, Debian 9 or 10, Ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04
  • open ports: 22 (SSH), 80 (Sunstone), 2616 (FireEdge)


Download the latest release of the miniONE tool, run it and follow the instructions on the terminal.

Get Frontend Only

Run the following commands to deploy only the OpenNebula frontend:

wget ''
sudo bash minione --frontend

For frontend only installation either a virtual machine or bare-metal host could be used. Afterwards, you can follow this tutorial to deploy edge clusters on-premises or on-cloud.

Get Frontend and KVM Node Cloud

Run the following commands to deploy an evaluation cloud with a front-end and a single KVM node:

wget ''
sudo bash minione

This option is suitable for bare-metal hosts to utilize HW virtualization, however the deployment will fallback to emulation (QEMU) if running on virtual machine or CPU without the virt. capabilities.
