We will introduce an automated base image building system deployed in production at CESNET. COMFY takes care of image building, image upload, generating ONE templates and cleaning up outdated base images. As part of the presentation, we will discuss challenges involved in building base images for multiple Linux distributions, approaches to automation and difficulties we faced when uploading them into OpenNebula. Code will be publicly available on GitHub as Open Source.
