XLAB's contributions to open source projects


Integrating existing open source components with
high specialist knowledge

We believe that open and cross project collaboration allow for innovation and interoperability, impacting our
cloud computing offerings across compute, storage and network resource management stack.

Standardized interfaces
for orchestration

Deployment across
multiple cloud
infrastructure types


Continuous integration
and application

The DevOps approach
adopted to develop
agile solutions

Our Contributions

As of October 2016, XLAB is listed under contributors to ManageIQ, the open source cloud management platform for container, virtual, private and public cloud infrastructures.


The release 0.3.4 of our DICE Deployment Service and version 0.7.0 of the DICE TOSCA technology library introduces a unified approach to deploying blueprints to OpenStack, Amazon EC2 or Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator without needing to change anything in the blueprint.


The unikernel OSv, core component of the MIKELANGELO project, is used to wrap workloads into virtual machines with minimal execution and storage overheads – integration with UniK, Capstan and OpenStack is highlighted.

Open-source is in our veins

Working with different technologies to build agile solutions, teams at XLAB have been contributing to their favorite open source projects since 2009.

Thousands of lines of code have been released within more than 60 research projects, building up momentum with integrations upstream including e.g. Torque and OpenStack.

The new releases continue to improve performance, flexibility, scalability and security of Cloud and HPC platforms, as a response to user demands.

The complete list of components, how these fit together and how well they perform is available at GitHub.

Some of our components, applications and demonstrators can be run and checked immediately, while others may require a little more hands-on approach. You are invited to check it out, kick the tires and provide feedback.

Drop us a line

Feel free to jump on board and help us close the feedback loop.
It will allow us to continue our work and speed up new updates.
