Some time ago I walked through installing the Cloud management solution known as CloudForms in a container. While this was fun, it was not really feasible and quickly ran into limitations in use.
In CloudForms 4.6 deploying CloudForms on top of OpenShift is fully supported and we will post more information about this soon.
The real solution is pulling this example into the Red Hat Demo Central collection and put it on a Cloud solution based on open technologies. This gives you the chance to go from your laptop, to Cloud installation and onwards to a Cloud Operations solution in just minutes.
Let’s take a look at how this works, shall we?

For the last few posts Laurent Domb has been explaining how to squeeze CloudForms and AWS integration by teaching you how to:
- Upload the CF images to AWS
- Create all the needed config files in AWS
- Deploy CF on AWS
- Configure the new in 4.6 SmartState Analysis (SSA)
- Use that SSA to add a compliance policy to an instance
- Use AWS authentication in CF
