Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to Thomas Lange for this link. ]

The FAI project announced[1], that it moved its $HOME to a new domain name. For more than 11 years now, FAI (Fully Automatic Installation) lived happily at http://www.informatik.uni-koeln.de/fai. Now that it's grown up, it finally deserves its own home at http://fai-project.org. This also means less typing for all of FAI's friends.

Along with the new web home also its sister, the wiki[2], and the has moved. If you are a friend with FAI, however, you might want to update your sources.list to the new location:

deb http://fai-project.org/download lenny koeln

The old URL's will still work, but they suggest to update to the new ones. If you have links on your web page to the FAI project, please update the links to the new location and also update your address book aka bookmarks accordingly.

FAI would like to thank its parents at the University of Cologne for hosting and continuing support - the new home is still provided by the University of Cologne.

About FAI

FAI is a non-interactive system to install, customize and manage Linux systems and software configurations on computers as well as virtual machines and chroot environments, from small networks to large infrastructures and clusters. It's a tool for mass unattended Linux installation. You can take one or more virgin systems, turn on the power, and after a few minutes, the systems are installed, and completely configured to your exact needs, without any interaction necessary.

The homepage of FAI is: http://fai-project.org
