The OSUOSL Supercell cluster is a service that will enable projects to do testing for their software on various operating systems. This generally falls into the following types of requirements:
Currently the cluster consists of x86-based virtualization machines using Linux KVM and managed via Ganeti. Users of the system will interact with their VM's via Ganeti Web Manager to create, remove and access the VNC console to their VM's. The majority of the Supercell infrastructure is powered by Gentoo Linux.
Supercell is currently in early beta as a few partner open source projects help us test out the cluster. You can sign up to receive an announcement when the cluster is opened up for additional testers by completing our Feedback Form.
The current supported guest operating systems are:
We hope to eventually add support for the following operating systems:
We need your help to determine which guest operating systems the community would most like to see us support. Please take a moment to fill out our Feedback Form to share your thoughts and to be notified when Supercell is ready for use by more open source projects.
We currently have two Mac OS X XServe machines available for testing software on. We only offer shared ssh accounts currently.
We hope to eventually support other architectures, but that is a long-term goal. Eventually, we would like to support the following architectures:
|2 x Dell R815||4 x Opteron 6172 (2.1 Ghz, 12-core)||128G||6 x 300GB 10K SAS||Ganeti Node|
|Dell R510||2 x Intel E5620 (2.4Ghz, 4-core)||12G||12 x 1T 7.2K near-line SAS||NFS Storage|
|2 x Apple Xserve||Intel Xeon (2.26Ghz, 4-core)||24G||1 x 160G 7.2 SATA||Mac OS X testing|
Supercell is currently in early beta. We're rolling out the service to a few project partners for use, and we look forward to their feedback on how we can improve Supercell. We hope to open it up to the wider open source community very soon.
We have no plans to charge open source projects for using this service. The creation of Supercell was made possible through a generous monetary and hardware donation from Facebook and their Open Source Team. The OSU Open Source Lab is currently seeking additional Sponsors for the Supercell project.
