Ironfan, the groundwork of the Infochimps Platform, is a systems provisioning, deployment, and updating tool that is built from a combination of proprietary technologies and open-source technologies like Chef and Fog.
After several proof-of-concepts and forks, hampered by the lack of underlying abstractions, we are happy to announce true multicloud capabilities for Ironfan. These capabilities update the current version to a largely similar feature-set to core Ironfan v3 (i.e. EC2 only). The current version is also ready for new providers, and VMware is working on catching up their fork of Ironfan, Serengeti, to use the latest code. This latest version has been undergoing heavy development and testing, including increasing third-party contributions, and we have an increased internal focus on expanding and hardening both the cookbooks and the knife plugin.
