Quattor is a distribution of open source tools aimed at complete system management. It can be used to manage non-grid servers, desktops, virtual machines and much more.
There are three high level building blocks:
- The CMDB server
- The AII server
- Managed Clients
Developed to manage the clusters and services used in grid computing, Quattor is used to manage many separate infrastructures worldwide. From massive single-sites such as CERN to highly-distributed multi-site infrastructures such as Grid-Ireland and a few very large commercial companies operating hundreds of thousands of nodes. Central to Quattor is a powerful language, Pan, for describing configuration.
Quattor is developed and supported entirely by the community that uses it; there are no full-time paid developers.
- Complete system – manages the complete lifecycle of systems; from initial installation, through configuration, to service upgrades
- Proven in academic and commercial environments, managing infrastructures ranging from tens of systems to over 3,000
- Extensive validation features for system descriptions catch configuration errors before you deploy them to your infrastructure
|There is partial support for Mac OS X.
