Americas Workshop potential topic?


New to juju and reading about how it can maintain both containers and virtual machines. Would be interested in a juju topic that manages both a container (e.g. lxc) and a virtual machine (e.g. qemu/kvm)

to my knowledge you cannot use qemu/kvm … perhaps via MaaS (Metal as a Service) ?

You can use “manual” machines with any virtualization technology really and MAAS has pods with KVM and LXD.

I even manage my LXD hosts themselves from a LXD container running inside of one of the hosts its managing. Very meta, but it works great.

made into a workshop: [community event] Americas workshop: juju/lxd/kvm - announcements and community - Charmhub


hey @hmlanigan, sorry I couldn’t make this week. I thought last week’s workshop was excellent though, thank you :pray:

I’m wondering if there would be any interest in a workshop where we highlight Omnivector’s use of the OF in the slurm-charms?

An example agenda:

  • handling charm events
  • ops code organization
  • charm libs
  • charm resources
  • charm actions


It’s a great idea! When can you present? This Friday, September 9?

Can we grab the next spot on Friday, Sept 16?

I’ve added an event to the Community Calendar:

America Community Workshop: OF in slurm-charms
Friday, September 16 · 1:00 – 2:00pm EDT

This is super interesting, I’m very interested in this and I’ll try ping in some people from the Slurm domain aswell.
