[Links of the Day] 01/08/2017 : Os Image generation, K/V optimized for SSD, Command line cloud deployment tool


  • mkosi : Tool for generating OS image. This is nice if you need to create an maintain low-level OS image with EFI support and GPT based table. It is invaluable if you do bare metal deployment / PXE  based deployment. [github]
  • WiscKey : Key / Value pair system optimised for SSD systems. Especially aiming at avoiding write amplification with traditional LSM based K/V system. 
  • Arc :  plaintext manifest for provisioning and deploying a cloud infrastructure. It's quite nice and elegant interface for such tedious task. If you have used chef, puppet, cloud formation or terraform you know how verbose this can get.
