Provisioning and managing bare metal, VMs and cloud instances with Foreman

Foreman is an open source tool to provision, configure and manage bare metal, VMs and cloud instances, through a Web GUI and RESTful API. Foreman also has deep integration with Puppet, an Open Source configuration management framework. When Puppet and Foreman are combined, one can manage any system from birth to decommissioning.

Foreman achieves this by interacting both with direct virtualization and cloud APIs, in addition to interacting with an included proxy application, called SmartProxy, that provides REST APIs to all services required during the provisioning process. These services include, DNS, DHCP, TFTP, Preseed, Kickstart, Puppet and the PuppetCA.

During this talk, Ohad will overview Foreman's architecture and feature set, including enterprise friendly features like RBAC and delegation. He will also provide a demonstration, share the Foreman development roadmap and overview the state of the community, including how to get involved.

Afterwards:

If there is interest, lets go somewhere close for drinks

      Hi Ohad, we deployed hundreds of machines worldwide during the last few years with Foreman (been with it since version 0.1), if you have any talk format/template, I'll might be able to assist.
