A cloud-independent server provisioning webapp
Python JavaScript CSS
Latest commit 904042d May 29, 2014 @tobami Pin celery version to 2.5



This project aims to provider a complete server provisioning and configuration management application.

The first version is a unified front-end to public and private clouds, custom server providers and dedicated hardware.


  • EC2 and Rackspace server provisioning. All clouds supported by libcloud will be supported given enough testing
  • Provider Plugins: Any provider can be integrated by writing either a libcloud driver or an Overmind provisioning plugin
  • Import any server into Overmind witht the "Dedicated Hardware" plugin
  • Complete REST API for provider and nodes
  • Authentication with three user roles

See the wiki for architectural info.



  • Python 2.6+
  • Django 1.3
  • apache-libcloud
  • django-celery
  • RabbitMQ (or alternative message queue supported by Celery)

All python dependencies can be installed using the requirements file:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Install Overmind

  • Download the last stable release from http://github.com/tobami/overmind/downloads and unpack it
  • Create the DB by changing to the overmind/ directory and running:

    python manage.py syncdb
  • For testing purposes start the celery server on a console

    python manage.py celeryd -l info

    and the django development server

      python manage.py runserver

Now you can visit the Overmind overview page on localhost:8000/overview
