In a virtualized environment, contextualization is the process of configuring a VM instance for the needs of various deployment use cases. Contextualization in CernVM can be done by passing a handwritten context to the user data field of cloud APIs, when running CernVM on the cloud, or by using CernVM web interface when running the VM locally. CernVM Online is a publicly accessible web interface that unifies these two procedures. A user is able to de ne, store and share CernVM contexts using CernVM Online and then applies them either in a cloud by using CernVM Cloud Gateway or on a local VM with the single-step pairing mechanism.
