Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-710) Create a higher level orchestration deployment framework
Date Sat, 22 Sep 2012 03:43:08 GMT


Bruno Mahé commented on BIGTOP-710:

Anatoli> It could, but I would not go there.
Building a robust open cluster manager has a much larger scope than building something solving
Apache Bigtop issues of today. Before trying to solve everyone's problem, I would rather try
to solve Apache Bigtop's first. We can always expand later on.

Which brings me to the point that this ticket try to state a solution to a problem not yet
We all know and talked about wanting some sort of orchestration layer to help us managing
our VMs and test nodes (see BIGTOP-635 for instance) but we probably all have something different
in mind. This may create some confusion later when implementations starts to appears but not
matching everyone's expectations.
So maybe we should spend some time first defining the use cases and requirements?

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.
