Abstract : Almost ten years after its premises, the Grid'5000 platform has become one of the most complete testbeds for designing or evaluating large-scale distributed systems. Initially dedicated to the study of High Performance Computing, the infrastructure has evolved to address wider concerns related to Desktop Computing, the Internet of Services and more recently the Cloud Computing paradigm. In this paper, we present the latest mechanisms we designed to enable the automated deployment of the major open-source IaaS cloudkits (i.e., Nimbus, OpenNebula, CloudStack, and OpenStack) on Grid'5000. Providing automatic, isolated and reproducible deployments of cloud environments lets end-users study and compare each solution or simply leverage one of them to perform higher-level cloud experiments (such as investigating Map/Reduce frameworks or applications).
