Hello Everyone. I thought I’d take this opportunity to
come out of the shadows and introduce myself. I’ve been monitoring the mailing
list for sometime now and have yet to post anything. So with XEN3.0 out, now is
a good a time as any.
A little background, I am the lead technologist for an open
source consulting shop in Toronto
Ontario called Enomaly. We’ve
been using XEN2.0 for a while, mostly in our development environment and have
become major fans of XEN and Paravirtualization in general. Most of the work we
do is in the realm of open source enterprise content management and open source
enterprise migration. Our preferred environments are Linux, Apache, PHP, & Python.
We are fairly database agnostic, but do tend to use mysql, postgres and SQLite.
In terms of development methodologies, we subscribe to a modified agile
Besides Open source consulting, we also look for new and
under developed software niches, that is actually why I am emailing the list
today. One of our current projects is a web based server management console for
XEN called Enomalism (www.enomalism.com). We are in the early stages of
developing this application. The tool is modeled after a VPS style deployment architecture
similar to Virtuozzo. We are planning on releasing our code early in the new
year with an open source license, which we have yet to decide on. The
Enomalism application will be primarily built in a python programming
environment.(TubroGears, CherryPy, SQLObject, json-py, eclipse ), Nagios will
be used for the server monitoring, jailtime for virtual file systems and MochiKit
for the AJAX
Anyway, I wanted to say hello and let you know who we are
and what we’re doing. You will be the first to know when our software is
ready for a public unveiling. I hope to get much more involved with the mailing
list in the weeks and months to come.
