We are pleased to announce Blender, an opensource modular orchestration
engine written in ruby to complement and enhance our automation suite.
Blender allows running tasks/commands using pluggable backends (ssh, serf
etc) against fleet of hosts (which can be discovered by chef, serf, zk
etc). It also allows concurrency, fine control of execution order,
distributed locking (zk) for synchornization etc.
Blender, was grown out of our need to orchestrate and summarize fleet wide
workflows (like chef runs, , multi staged bootstrapping, cassandra/zk and
other cluster operations/provisioning etc).
