snf-image

Overview

This is snf-image, a Ganeti OS provider primarily used by the Synnefo cloud management software to deploy VM instances from predefined or custom Images.

It comprises two distinct components:

  • snf-image-host, which executes as a privileged process on the Ganeti host
  • snf-image-helper, which executes inside a helper VM and undertakes all security-sensitive customization of a Ganeti VM.
