+2011-January 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:-
+        * fix for xen root declaration (necessary if using external kernel)
+        * parameterize xen root disk declaration
+        * implement Miha Stopar's fix to improve handoff during migration
+        * implement Miha Stopar and Andrew Edmond's patch to register and
+          unregister hosts, and improve locking of resources
+        * allow use of virtio disks under qemu
+Richard Gass has created a branch to work on the physical machine reservation
+component (zoni-dev):-
+        * allow physical machine registration
+        * add integration with Apache web server for control
+        * add facilities for DNS/DHCP registration of physical resources
+        * make changes to Zoni DB layout (convert some tables to InnoDB)
+        * add initial infrastructure hardware (switch and PDU)
+        * demonstrate initial VM usage reports (shame-tashi)
+        * add logging to infrastructure hardware controllers
+        * add abstraction layer for hardware controllers
+        * add debug console to zoni
+        * add DNS/DHCP key creation functions
+        * add physical to virtual cluster manager service
+        * add primitive agent to keep minimal amount of machines powered
+          on and scale up from there
+        * allow zoni-cli to talk to hardware directly
+The project is still working toward building a larger user and development 
+community. User groups have been identified in Ireland, Slovenia and Korea,
+as well as at Georgia Tech. Several suggestions provided by users at those
+sites have been implemented in the head.
+Items to be resolved before graduation:
+        * Prepare and review a release candidate
+        * Develop community diversity (currently Intel and CMU committers)
