RDODear *,

If you plan or already use OpenStack on Red Hat and Red Hat-based platforms, then I am sure this web site[1] is definitively going to interest you.

I think specifically to the BeNeLux customers or companies I work with and who are followers of this Blog.

RDO is a community of people using and deploying OpenStack on Red Hat and Red Hat-based platforms.

If your company or you are based in BeNeLux and are interested by IT Industrialization/Automation, just let me know and I will arrange a meeting for you.

Dear all,

BoxGrindier is going to be present @ FOSDEM’12.

Marek Goldmann will be presenting in the JBoss.org dev room on Saturday:

11:00 – 11:55 BoxGrinder : Grind your appliances easily

Here is the abstract :

BoxGrinder is a set of tools that help you grind out appliances: preconfigured disk images with the operating system and requisite software ready to run on a selected virtualization platform. With a simple text definition file and a single command BoxGrinder will build a lean appliance from scratch, convert it to a target format, and deliver it to your chosen infrastructure.

Virtualization has become almost ubiquitous in modern scalable infrastructures, with traditional dedicated hardware setups being replaced by multi-tenanted virtual environments. This change facilitates many of the beneficial properties of Cloud Computing, key amongst which is the ability to create small, function-specific appliances that enables system components to scale independently.

BoxGrinder addresses the key problem of specifying and building such appliances. It manages complexities such as software installation, dependency resolution and remote service interactions on your behalf. Existing methods can an arduously convoluted, with poor repeatability and performance characteristics; wasting time and resulting in slow and bloated appliances.  Such factors negate many of the motivating factors for embracing Cloud computing, and this is an obstacle that BoxGrinder is specifically designed to overcome. Coherent and simple to specify and run; yet fast to build and easily customized to any desired level of complexity.

In this session we will cover the basic concepts of BoxGrinder, with discussion of techniques and use-cases that illustrate how best to utilise BoxGrinder’s powerful feature-set. Finally, we will work through a live example, from text definition to a running virtual appliance.
