Come and join the horde in the Bazaar's War Room. Pins on the globe represent peers: green online, red offline. We aim to fill the globe up with lots of green pins with no bald spots. We collaborate in the built in chat or on our Slack Channel to find new folks to create peers in the empty patches.
Register on the Subutai Bazaar this month using the code WEBSITE, and we’ll give you some goodwill to trade cloud resources with others on the system. Happy sharing!
We’re always looking for feedback from both new and established members of the Subutai horde! If you’re creating peers, sharing resources, and creating cloud environments, we’d love to hear from you!
Tell us what you think by clicking on the “Rate us” widget in the War Room.
Subutai has a blueprint feature for standing up complicated application stacks over several containers. It’s a simple JSON based templating format similar to Amazon’s Cloud Formation templates. Use blueprints to fire up application stacks within environments, and/or build environments using your favorite devops tools for automation. Subutai blueprints support Ansible and other tools out of the box.
Subutai Blueprints specify general instructions for installing, updating and maintaining P2P distributed cloud applications. The Subutai P2P Cloud combines these instructions with load and resource availability information to optimally place infrastructure resources in P2P cloud environments and run distributed applications. P2P orchestration can occur perpetually to adapt to shifting conditions to keep applications running.
Contributors who create blueprints that are made freely available on the Subutai Bazaar may qualify for GoodWill promotions. Get started today!
Peer installation is straightforward with many options. We’re working on finishing touches with different platforms and package managers so if anyone wants to help out we appreciate it.
For those of you who want to help, but are not technically savvy, don’t worry you can still help. We need to make sure anyone can provide and utilize resources. We’re working on an easy to use peer launcher, however it’s a bit raw and in beta. It should help you setup a peer inside a virtual machine to sell resources to others and earn Goodwill contributing idle resources to open source projects. There may be problems with the launcher since everyone’s setup is different and we have not worked out the bugs. However if you could help us out by testing them that would be awesome.
We need GitHub projects to register for the OS contribution program and provide blueprints for their applications so they can be made available to all users in the Subutai Bazaar. The Subutai FOSS Contribution Program explains this in detail.
Anyone can then fire up open source cloud applications while sharing resources.
We invite you to review our Open Source Contribution Program, which provides direct resource assistance to Open Source Projects.
