Freezer puppet manifests spec¶
As there is no any automation tools for Freezer it is proposed to develop a set of puppet manifests for auto install the following Freezer components:
Freezer (freezer-agent and scheduler);
Freezer Horizon Web UI;
Optionally we can consider possible to add set of manifests for Freezer Disaster Recovery.
All implemented manifest should follow principles of idempotence.
This bundle should make Freezer deployment pretty convenient and simple for end-users and shouldn’t require additional pieces of knowledge regarding Freezer infrastructure during the first installation.
Also, these manifests should significantly simplify maintenance of Freezer modules.
All Freezer puppet manifest should be located in separate repo: https://github.com/openstack/puppet-freezer
Puppet community requires having packages for various operating systems. Nevertheless, for a while can be used package puppet module
RPM packages should be discussed in #rdo IRC channel on OFTC and then added in RDO trunk according to the RDO guaidliness
Debian packaging of OpenStack should be discussed in #openstack-pkg IRC channel on OFTC
at the very beginning puppet manifests should be implemented for Freezer, Freezer-API and python-freezerclient components and only after that for Freezer-WebUI and Freezer-DR
This functionality can be implemented in various ways like ansible playbooks, shell scripts salt formulas, however, it was decided to start from puppet manifests.
