Dell’s Crowbar Looking Very Promising

written by Calvin Hendryx-Parker on Friday July 29, 2011

crowbar.pngWhile at OSCON this week, I got the opprotunity to sit in on the Dell Crowbar presentation and live demo at their booth. Crowbar is an OpenStack installer and much more from what I could see. They have combined some very nice tools into a useable UI to get off the ground quickly and manage the growth of your cloud.

One thing that really impressed me about the project though was their aparent dedication to making this Open Source. Seems like a lot of the exhibitors are sporting their wares at OSCON to support Open Source development with their commercial products, but in this case, Dell has put the project on GitHub for everyone to participate in. I have a feeling this will be very disruptive and may put them ahead of the curve when compared to some commercial offerings like Nebula.

I’d encourage everyone to check it out if you are at all interested in OpenStack and cloud computing. Let me know what you think.
