New Ruby based Linux Cloud Automation Suite Announced!

Couple of friends I have in the business have gathered together to create their own automation suite in protest against the poorly designed and implemented offerings currently available.

They have called the project, Cryogen and its premise is to provide a means of automating system admin tasks in the Linux space. Essentially it contains a number of independent services which handle everything from deployment, monitoring, patching, decommissioning and reporting.

Currently the project is in its infancy but from the small demo I had recently it appears to be coming along very nicely. So far it can handle Redhat and Debian based distribution deployments along with patching and basic reporting.

A lot of the pieces employed are based on industry standard application stacks such as Puppet, Kickstart, Cobbler and Ruby on Rails.

If you would like more information head over to their sign up page at cryogen.kickofflabs.com
