Subject [jira] [Created] (FALCON-313) Create a Juju Charm for Falcon
Date Thu, 13 Feb 2014 15:02:19 GMT
Maarten Ectors created FALCON-313:

             Summary: Create a Juju Charm for Falcon
                 Key: FALCON-313
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FALCON-313
             Project: Falcon
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: general
            Reporter: Maarten Ectors

Juju (juju.ubuntu.com) is the default solution from Ubuntu to instantly deploy, integrate
and scale software on any public cloud, private cloud or server. The magic behind Juju is
called a charm. A charm can be written in any language. There are charms made in/with bash,
python, java, chef, puppet, ansible, docker, etc. 

Juju's strength is instant integration and scaling. Especially for Falcon this would greatly
help users see its immediate value in minutes. A Falcon charm that would have existing relationships
with the other charms like Hive, HBase, Hadoop, Cassandra, Mongo, MySQL, etc. would allow
anybody to quickly import and export data in a controlled way between its existing data sources.
The Falcon charm could also easily integrate with the Logstash charm and as such get log information
from all other charms. There are many more solutions.

To give you a 1 minute demo just go to: https://jujucharms.com/sidebar/search/?text=instantBigDataNoSQL
and drag-and-drop "demo: instant" from left to right and you will see all major Big Data and
NoSQL solutions instantly deployed and integrated. Just click on Cassandra or Hadoop Slaves
and change from 10 units to 100 units to scale to a 100 node Cassandra or Hadoop cluster.
This demo is not having a cloud doing the actual deployment but you would be able to do the
exact same on AWS, HP Cloud, Azure, private OpenStack, bare-metal servers with maas.ubuntu.com
and even on a local Ubuntu machine [provided it had a lot of memory and CPU]. Make any changes
and see how you can instantly export a bundle and import it into another environment.

PS Jean-Baptiste Onofre already is writing a Karaf charm so he can give some good guidance.
Additionally at Ubuntu we are happy to give a free remote training on how to write charms.
