Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-710) Create a higher level orchestration deployment framework
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2012 05:07:09 GMT


Bruno Mahé commented on BIGTOP-710:

Has anyone taken a look at mcollective? I haven't had time to try yet but from its front page it seems to do exactly the intent of this
The Marionette Collective AKA MCollective is a framework to build server orchestration or
parallel job execution systems.
It seems also to not be always tied to puppet:
Break free from ever more complex naming conventions for hostnames as a means of identity.
Use a very rich set of meta data provided by each machine to address them. Meta data comes
from Puppet, Chef, Facter, Ohai or plugins you provide yourself.

> It would be very nice to start using our puppet code as a basis for a higher level orchestration
framework capable of driving a true distributed multi-node deployment of Bigtop components.
Puppet code is great at stamping out a predictable single node deployments, but we have to
extend it with a DSL aimed at solving higher level orchestration.
