I'm pleased to announce the 1.0 release of ActiveCluster, the open source cluster management & control framework.

This release completes the core API and reference implementation which includes the following features

  • viewing the current nodes in the cluster and their state
  • listening to nodes arrive, update their state, shut down or fail
  • communicate with the cluster as a whole or with any specific node in the cluster
  • elect a leader of the cluster to make decisions on behalf of the cluster

Future versions will include more complex higher level protocols like buddy-group arrangement protocols and HA features.
