Commissaire is a lightweight REST interface for performing system management tasks on network hosts in a cluster through Ansible.

Current capabilities include rolling upgrades and restarts of traditional or "Atomic" hosts, and bootstrapping new hosts into an existing "container management" system such as OpenShift or Kubernetes.

Moving forward, Commissaire will expand the scope of its REST interface to provide centralized host inventory management and consoldate various Linux subsystems into a centralized API.
