Development of a plugin for the opensource server lifecycle management tool Foreman

From Lsdf


For the deployment of bare-metal and virtual machines, SCC is starting to use Foreman [0] which is a complete lifecycle management tool for physical and virtual servers. Therby, Foreman already supports many virtualization environments like e.g. Redhat Enterprise Virtualisaion [1] and VMWare [2].

The objective of this project is the development of a Foreman Plugin which allows the deployment of so called LPARS [3] on Power8 hardware [4].


  • research the functionality and ability of Foremans plugin mechanism [5]
  • implementation of the plugin which allows the deployment of Power8 LPARS
  • testing the plugin


  • programming experience in RUBY [6] would be helpful
