Archipel is simple application, but it needs you to install some tools in order to have it working. You will basically need a Linux machine with QEMU/KVM installed and a running Ejabberd (XMPP) server. Don't worry it is kind of easy to install. You can follow instruction from our wiki
Agent is pretty easy to install. To get the latest stable release, just follow the installation guide.
That's a crash course. For a full installation documentation, please visit our wiki
ANSOS, The ready-to-use Archipel hypervisor
What is it?
Archipel Node Stateless OS (or ANSOS) is a full packaged Linux distribution containing everything you need to boot up new hypervisors from nothing. It allows to configure solid state storage device at startup to store persistent data. All the rest of the OS is a live CD.
Build a virtualization platform in a minute
ANSOS is a live OS. This mean that you don't need to install anything on your physical machine. Burn the ISO on a CD, a USB Stick, or simply boot it from PXE. A lot of things are automated, and it basically only needs a shared storage device and a XMPP server.
Documentation is available on our Github wiki. As usual, if you have questions, fell free to join us on our IRC channel.
