The aim of the KisKis Cluster Management System is to produce an extremely simple, easy to use, end to end, secure private cluster management and control system that gets users up and running with their clustered applications in less than 5-10 minutes. We know several products already exist to manage private on premises IaaS cloud computing environments and our users can also use those products to manage their clusters. Platforms like Apache CloudStack or OpenStack are excellent products that will manage clusters just as well as KisKis would, however we feel these products try to cover too many scenarios and aspects being generally focused on IaaS.
They are designed to handle a wide range of situations, operating systems, software and hardware. The KisKis CMS is designed to just do one thing, manage clusters of clusterable software products, prepackaged into the system ready to be deployed to your own private infrastructure at the press of a button.
We package existing big data frameworks and enable you to provision and de-provision clusters of them over a set of hardware. You just boot the hardware up with USB, CDROM, or BOOTP and unattended installation of the hypervisor is automatically handled. On first boot, after installation, the hardware appears on the management console ready to be used to provision your clusters. You can then dynamically manage your cluster. There's no complex primary/secondary storage scenarios, or networking matters with network hardware. Everything is managed for a simple flat configuration using local storage that should fit most developers and IT professional needs in small companies with a few commodity machines they want to throw at it.
This project is about taking tens of ODROID-U2 machines (http://tinyurl.com/nrlcwr6) and configuring them in different scenarios to attack on working clusters, basically for test and benchmarking purposes.
This newly starting project is about creating an open source load balancer which can easily be integrated into multiple different infrastructure architectures and in multiple different scenarios.
The aim of this project is to integrate Odroid devices with a number of Vinn 3G dongles (or any USB 3G dongles) in an hot pluggable, easy to configure and flexible manner. By that, these lowpower, low-cost devices can be portably used to provide web services, act as servers and even form clusters.
