Provision servers with Salt-Cloud

We are planning to use saltstack to deploy/manage our servers. Saltstack has a tool to provision systems on various clouds providers called salt-cloud.

I saw that Profitbricks already supports libcloud, which is used by Salt-Cloud (see: https://github.com/saltstack/salt/tree/cebbfa943392ef16369364dedbb39e6c7aa89da8/salt/cloud/clouds).

Are there plans to support Salt-Cloud in the near future?

Yes, we have plans to support Salt Stack in the near future. As we plan it out, are there things missing in the libcloud implementation that you, as a user, would need in a Salt implementation?

Thanks. -matt

  • Great to hear that.

    I haven't used libcloud so far, so I can't say if something is missing, right now.

    Is there an ETA for the Salt-Cloud support? Or some kind of "early-adopter" thing?

    Thanks for the quick response, Thilo

  • I would expect the Salt implementation to be finished in the next 6 weeks or so. We can discuss requirements if there are certain features you're looking for over others. I would love to have an "early adopter" use it :) Are you OK with me pinging you via email?

  • Sure! Feel free to ping me. (Sorry for the late answer... I don't get any notifications if there are new messages in the community)
