Cloud and server Article

We are happy to announce that MAAS 3.1 has been released. Bare metal provisioning just got even easier! MAAS 3.1 brings some of the most frequently-requested features into the product.

Commissioning deployed machines: Request granted

Cloud and server Article

We want to make it possible to deploy MAAS in an existing datacenter, and have it keep track of machines that already have a deployed workload — without disturbing machine or workload.

About LXD LXD, pronounced “lex-DEE,” is a container manager, as well as a virtual machine manager. ...

Cloud and server MAAS

It’s possible to have more than one DHCP server on the same network and still have everything work right, with no conflicts and no dropped packets or IP requests.

Moving toward Diátaxis

Cloud and server Server

We discovered the Diátaxis Framework earlier this year. It’s been on our roadmap to shift MAAS doc to this cool new way of explaining things. This cycle, we plan to make it happen.

Basic DHCP concepts

Ubuntu MAAS

Let’s step back and take a very basic look at DHCP. In fact, let’s look at the analogy of assigning a street address to your house. Usually, this is done by the local 911 dispatch office, or some other central authority. They typically use either a survey map or a latitude, longitude pair to locate ...
