I am looking at possibilities of automation of disk image creation (installation) and
I ran across tools from Aeolus:
imagefactory - http://www.aeolusproject.org/imagefactory.html
and Oz - http://www.aeolusproject.org/oz.html
I noticed Oz is used in Heat too.
Is there some other tool I could look at?
There are lots of tools for image building. Oz is a bit different
from most others in that it actually spawns a VM to do an install,
while most other tools simply use a loopback mounted filesystem.
BoxGrinder would probably be your next choice on Fedora. BoxGrinder
uses python-imgcreate, but wraps it in a bunch of ruby code where some
of the postinstall image tweaking happens. (Personally, I use
ami-creator, which is a tiny python script that just subclasses from
python-imgcreate and implements a few functions to do the necessary
tweaks... no need for ruby here.)
