Today we are delighted to introduce the beginning of alpha access to FiFo.cloud. For the past five years, we have been working to create the most resilient on-premise open source cloud orchestration system. With Fifo.cloud not only is there no longer the need to setup FiFo, but now your cloud can span multiple locations whether that be your own DC, public cloud, or a customer site with limited infrastructure.
At its origin, FiFo was born out of the need to manage lightweight containers in a multi-tenant fashion, and at the time there was no sound solution for that. Today Fifo.cloud closes the loop; it is what Project-FiFo always has been but now more accessible than ever. Fifo.cloud retains Project-FiFo’s ability to scale to many hypervisors and manage massive numbers of containers, but it also eliminates the overhead of running on-premise Project-FiFo. With all the orchestration provided as a service, only a small agent must be installed on the hypervisor. FiFo-agent requires only a few dozen megabytes of memory, contrasted to other solutions that need gigabytes or even entire servers’ worth of resources.
We are very excited about what we have put into the alpha so far, and are looking forward to releasing even more features. We look forward to when containers all over the globe can be managed from a single piece of glass easily and effortlessly.
This is a limited alpha so that we will have a waitlist. Participants will have access to a free version while we are in testing. We will ask alpha users to commit to providing feedback, and understand that the system is under heavy development. Once we move into a production phase we still want to make this accessible to everyone, not just large users, so we are exploring ways to have a free tier. We love what we have built and are excited to share it with the world, if you are interested in the alpha, please sign up soon, as “space is limited.”
The beauty is that we use the same technology for FiFo.cloud that we are releasing as our open source FiFo so both these parts will grow from this together.
