Condor Cloud

Summary

Condor Cloud provides a cloud system for Fedora based on Condor.

Current status

Detailed Description

Condor Cloud provides a cloud implementation (Iaas) based on Condor using deltacloud (http://deltacloud.org) as the front end to control the cloud. It supports multiple hosts/nodes, caching of images on each node for quicker startup, and copy on write (COW) image files so the images do not need to be copied per-instance. It uses libvirt/KVM to launch instances on the hosts and is fairly configurable.

Benefit to Fedora

Condor Cloud would give Fedora a relatively easy to setup, robust cloud IaaS solution.

Scope

The cloud itself is all up and running. The deltacloud driver would have to be merged with upstream and we will need to create a package for the configuration and scripts needed to set up condor as the backend to deltacloud.

How To Test

You will need to install the Condor package and then get the source from:

http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=condor-cloud.git

There is an INSTALL document in the source, you can see it here:

http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=condor-cloud.git;a=blob_plain;f=INSTALL.txt


User Experience

This cloud could be used directly by end users or as a backend for Aeolus, although there is some testing to be done there yet.

Dependencies

Mostly we depend on getting the deltacloud driver upstream, but I don't think that will be too hard.

Contingency Plan

None necessary, revert to previous release behaviour.

Documentation

It's not much but:

http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=condor-cloud.git;a=blob_plain;f=DESIGN.txt

Release Notes

Condor Cloud is an IaaS cloud implementation built behind deltacloud (http://deltacloud.org).
