I came accross this in LinuxFormat, although not specifically designed for VPS companies, maybe one day we could see companies start using it. It does look like a sexy VM panel.


  • Cool. I remember a similar project for Virtualbox or sth like that, porting an interface for the web.

  • Cool, looking forward for providers who will use this :)

  • They only support KVM at the moment but the project is very interesting :)

  • I beleive Xen is also supported.

    From the website:

    Note that at the moment we only support KVM/QEMU. This is due to lack of features or bugs on other libvirt's drivers. Xen support is coming soon.

    "What is Archipel ?
    Archipel is an Open Source project that aims to bring push notifications to virtualization orchestration using XMPP.

    Archipel relies on open source technologies like python, ejabberd, cappuccino, strophe, nginx, libvirt, KVM and even more. All of these technologies are mixed together to create a real time orchestration solution for virtualization.

    Thanks to Archipel you are be able to :

    • Visualize in real time the states of virtual machines and hypervisors ;
    • Send real time commands to them ;
    • Communicate inside the orchestrator with other human users ;
    • Organize virtual machines and hypervisors into groups and send commands to them ;
    • Connect distant datacenters in a secure way using XMPP S2S communication ;
    • Even use Archipel with XMPP client like GMail in order to receive your VMs notifications ;
    • Avoid the presence of SPOF. If a something fails, everything else still works ;
    • Use it with KVM, Xen, OpenVZ, VirtualBox, and mix them all if you want to ;
    • Have a great real time interface.
    • And so much more to come!"

    Not what it says in there read me NordicVps :P

    I'd use that anytime. Lets see how it compares in terms of performance..

  • you can't type wget&&./, that means it's too complicated for most of the crap hosts :>

    Thanked by 1drmike

    Features page (scroll down to "Current Support")


    Libvirt: preliminary support for Xen (bugged due to libvirt)

  • you can't type wget&&./

    "type? Can't I click?"

  • XMPP based libvirt front end? So that means I can now reboot my VPS while chatting in Google Talk? Sweet :)
