‘Easy cloud computing’

What

A self-healing, load-balanced cloud computing solution. Combined with the power of Puppet, the High Availability project, ruby and erlang, PoolParty makes it easy and fun to set up your cloud! Currently, you can use it with ec2, but it’s not tied to any particular service. You can use PoolParty to manage and monitor your home network!

Installing

sudo gem install --source http://gems.github.com auser-poolparty

The basics

Demonstration of usage

cloud spec [name]

This will create a basic spec for you in the spec directory. Then, write your spec file. There are examples in the repos as well as the one below:

  # Basic poolparty template with apache plugin
  require "poolparty-apache2-plugin"

  pool :app do

    instances 2..5
    port 80
    ami "ami-1cd73375" # Alestic Ubuntu AMI

    cloud :app do

      apache do
        installed_as_worker      

        has_virtualhost do

          name "poolpartyrb.com"
          listen("8080")
          virtual_host_entry ::File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), "templates", "virtual_host.conf.erb")

          has_git(:name => "poolpartyrepos", :source => "git://github.com/auser/xnot.org.git", :path => "/var/www/xnot.org/public")

        end
      end

    end

  end
