Swarmlab Venus

Welcome to VEnus Network Unification Service

Swarmlab-venus Network Virtualization

provides on-demand network environments (Virtual Private Networks)

private - public - hybrid

Swarmlab Venus is Swarmlabs hybrids syblin, diagnosed with the VPN disease.

Swarmlab venus provides the user with the unique abillity to create virtual networks and use them to project for a Virtual Classroom, an app of your own making or proof of concept. An all of that using only a browser of their choice.


Ever imagined having a network environment to tryout stuff with your coworkers/costudents for work or just for fun?

Ever created a service that you would like to test on a real-world network?

Ever designed an Labroom/application you would like to distribute to your students/coworkers/potential clients?

Swarmlab venus comes to bridge the gap between you, your network/computer, the coder/developer of a service and the end user while at the same time meeting the needs for a real-world testing environment.

With venus you can now as part of the cloud work independantly but also stay connected.

The venus service allows us to utilize the power of Swarmlab itself but also combine it with the practiacally unlimited computing of our own machines.

Another Swarmlab app. Why?

How does Swarmlab Venus differ from Swarmlab Hybrid?

Well swarmlab-hybrid forces server-client/containerized applications while venus allows for peer-to-peer connection! You can create and connect directly to a network with your coworkers, whithout needing a server.

Ofcourse you can use venus independantly or alongside swarmlab and all of its powerful features.

To sum up, you can now design, develop and test apps using swarlab-hybrid but you can also connect directly to other interested parties for testing or work purposes.

System requirements

Before you create and configure a venus deployment using the swarmlab-agent client, your Local Machines need to meet certain requirements.

If you don't meet those requirements, you won't be able to complete the steps within the swarmlab-agent client and you won't be able to configure a network deployment between your Local Enviroment and Swarmlab Online Enviroment.

  • A Linux Server (Virtual or Physical)
  • You must have super user privileges (root/sudo)
  • Docker Engine- Community version 18 or later is required.
  • Docker Engine is supported on x86_64 (or amd64), armhf, and arm64 architectures.
  • RAM
  • Absolute minimum to run the daemon and some very light containers - 512MB
  • Minimum for “comfortable” usage – 2GB
  • CPU
  • Minimum: 2
  • Recommended 4+
  • Disk Space
  • 5 GB for internal requirements.
  • The amount of additional disk space soloemnly depends on you intended use.

⚠️ Since Docker uses hypervisor the host NEEDS TO HAVE VIRTUALIZATION ENABLED!
