Nice work by Lester! This will make deployment of your Euca cloud much much easier!
The first cut of the Ansible deployment playbook for deploying Eucalyptus private clouds is ready. I’ve merged the first “release” into the master branch here: https://github.com/lwade/eucalyptus-playbook. Feedback and contributions are very welcome, please file issues against the project.
This playbook allows a user to deploy a single front-end cloud (i.e. all component on a single system) and as many NC’s as they want. Although admittedly I’ve only tested with one so far. I’ve followed, to a certain degree, the best practices described here: http://ansible.cc/docs/bestpractices.html
Overall I’m pretty happy with it, there are some areas which I’d like to re-write and improve but the groundwork is there. It was all very fluid to start with and doing something multi-tier has been enjoyable. I’ve also learnt what its like to automate a deployment of Eucalyptus and there are probably a number of things we should improve to make it easier in this…
