IELO/Lost-Oasis team is proud to announce the first release of its components aimed to virtualisation platforms management.
Facing the emergence of non-free platforms like Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure and others it was necessary to bring a free solution. It’s the first early preview of our NiftyName. At the moment you can create and manage virtual machines pools and all related components (storage, private and public network, etc).
Multi-site active redundancy is not supported yet but all components have been designed for this.
The whole architecture is based on documented XMLRPC (SSL) webservices: you can make your own derivative tools on top.
Furthermore, two clients applications (console and GTK) on top of the API are already distributed.
This 1.0.0 verison supports the following functionnalities:
- Virtual machines (based on KVM, multi cpu, x86-64, VNC, etc)
- Storage (private, public, clone, shared between instances)
- Network (public addresses, IPv6 support, private Vlan, multiple interfaces)
- Users/clients management, permissions, roles, etc
A test platform is available, you can create test users and services today in real conditions.
We’re looking forward to read your remarks, propositions and contributions to make the project better and carry it to a higher level.
