Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "October2011" page has been changed by MichaelStroucken:

add tashi

   1. We have pre-Apache releases on github and our current effort mostly focused on a major
refactoring of the codebase. Goal is to have it ready soon so that we don't need to support
2 distinct concurrent versions.

+ # Tashi
+ 2011-October Tashi Incubator Status Report
+ Tashi has been incubating since September 2008.
+ The Tashi project aims to build a software infrastructure for cloud computing 
+ on massive internet-scale datasets (what we call Big Data). The idea is to 
+ build a cluster management system that enables the Big Data that are stored in 
+ a cluster/data center to be accessed, shared, manipulated, and computed on by 
+ remote users in a convenient, efficient, and safe manner.
+ Tashi has previously encompassed just the tools to manage virtual
+ machines using Xen and KVM, but is gaining the facility to hand out
+ physical machines as well.
+ Development activities have included:-
+         * Zoni has been merged into the mainline code trunk
+         * Additional capability added to Zoni
+         * Implement hint to influence scheduler packing policy
+         * Reject incorrect arguments to tashi-client to prevent
+           unintended defaults from being used
+         * Migrated to rpyc version 3.1
+         * Add "free capacity" info function to Tashi
+         * Support for auto creation of zoni tftp boot menus
+         * Fixed deadlocks in clustermanager
+         * Rewrite CM to concentrate decay handlers into one spot
+         * Use Linux LVM for local scratch space creation
+         * VMM is now authoritative to what is running
+         * Retry deploying held VMs at a later time
+ The project is still working toward building a larger user and development 
+ community. User groups have been identified in Ireland, Slovenia and Korea,
+ Malaysia, as well as at Georgia Tech.
+ Items to be resolved before graduation:
+         * A stable branch exists which could be a release candidate, but
+           the codebase is large and test hardware is currently in
+           short supply. We are confident that the code in the stablefix
+           branch will work if running QEMU emulation, Pickle or sqlite
+           data storage, primitive scheduler. Xen, other data stores and
+           schedulers have not been tested recently.
+         * Should have example accounting code (data is kept, but
+           intepretation is currently manual)
+         * Develop community diversity (Committers currently at Telefonica,
+           Google and CMU)
