Cfengine’s Orion Cloud Pack to Work on OpenNebula Clouds
A powerful combination for datacenter automation and management

If you're a system administrator, you've probably already heard of Cfengine, a cross-platform datacenter automation framework used by more than 5,000 companies on millions of machines worldwide. With Cfengine, the sysadmin describes the desired system state and Cfengine takes care of the rest: it will install packages, maintain configuration files, keep permissions and ensure the right processes are running according to your policy.

A couple of months agoCfengine presented a brief overview of the possibilities of a Cfengine-managed OpenNebula setup at the Large Installation System Administration (LISA) conference in San Jose. The Cfengine team presented how Cfengine may be used on both the physical and virtual sides of an OpenNebula-based cloud. More specifically, they presented how Cfengine can be used to install and configure the physical infrastructure in an OpenNebula cloud, followed by the launch and configuration of generic virtual machine images that will run on top of that OpenNebula infrastructure.

In a recent news article, Cfengine has announced that its Orion Cloud Pack, which was originally conceived to make the use of the Amazon EC2 Cloud simple for users of Cfengine, is also working on OpenNebula cloud instances.
