Just a quick update to let you know what we’ve been up to at Cloudticity. We’re hard at work on a cloud management toolset that will automate a lot of things you currently have to do manually. We’re targeting Amazon AWS first, followed by Microsoft Azure, then OpenStack.
As we develop, we’ll post articles about our experience, including deep-dive code reviews. We’ll open source the code (currently using C# / .NET), and hope it’s useful enough for others to take advantage. Of course, we’re not charging anything for this toolset.
Later we’ll use this toolset to build a suite of management products, but for now, our goal is simply to make something beautiful, elegant, and useful.
Stay tuned, more to come!
I’m going to pause the tutorials for a quick post on an interesting challenge I had to solve over the past couple of days. I was installing Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server Power Tools and ran into a snag – it consistently failed to install. I’m not an expert on Microsoft’s installation technology (even though I worked there for a number of years), but I know quite a bit more after this latest adventure!
Team Foundation Server is Microsoft’s application lifecycle management product – it manages source code, task assignments, bug tracking, and a whole lot more. It’s actually a pretty good product. It allows me to delve into my current project’s code metrics pretty deeply, but I really needed to Power Tools installed to generate some custom notifications.
Well, downloading the tools was easy, but every time I’d try to install, I’d get an insidious error: “Error 1001.” You see, we’re not even to Error 1721 yet. With Error 1001, that’s all I got. No other descriptive text. No hints. Nothing. Just…Error…1001.
