DevOps Toolchain Project
(was "Toolchain for Fully Automated Provisioning")

We've been working on a collaborative effort to establish a methodology and toolchain to support the DevOps lifecycle.

Visit the new home of the DevOps Toolchain Project!

This project was originally focused only on automated provisioning.  It's original goal was to help make sense of the various open source automation tools that are available. Based on feedback, we are expanding the toolchain project to include the full spectrum of tools needed to support an efficient and agile DevOps lifecycle. The project will also include a public repository of community-contributed design patterns. 

Below is Lee Thompson's presentation form O'Reilly's Velocity Online Conference explaining the foundation of the project and announcing the newly expanded project:




The earlier toolchain efforts yielded both a draft of the toolchain (provisioning only) and an accompanying whitepaper. This is the starting point for the broader project.
