The pacemaker-cloud project demonstrates the current community work in providing application service high availability in a cloud environment.


  • Email: <>

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 16
  • Last updated: (May 26, 2011)
  • Percentage of completion: 20%

Detailed Description

The software provides a cli which allows: Create a VM from a template. Launch deployable on local machine. Kill/restart applications if failure detected. Kill/restart assembly if failure detected. Kill/restart deployable if failure detected. Notification of failures of any of the objects in the system.

Benefit to Fedora

This brings high availability of the deployable/assembly VM model to the system single node. In future versions we intend to integrate with other cloud management systems.


This is a standalone package but has several dependencies on other parts of Fedora 16.

How To Test

Binaries have not been named, as such this section is TODO.

yum install pacemaker-cloud Launch the cli shell create deployables via the cli shell Launch deployables via the cli shell Kill individual applications and expect the cli to print the application failure. Kill individual assemblies and expect the cli to print the assembly failure. After an application is killed, validate that the application is restarted. After an assembly is killed, validate that the assembly and it's applications are running again.

User Experience

There are no user experience changes.
