Full Description

Cloud-Native Applications Seed Project

This repository contains the source files for the cloud optimized version of Zurmo CRM. This Application is part of the Cloud-Native Application Seed Project where we try to migrate an existing OpenSource Business Application to the cloud.
More information about the project and the whole cloud-native application research topic can be found on our blog.

The folders prefixed with zurmo_ contain the source files for the docker images. The repository also contains files to start a cluster of CoreOS machines on Vagrant or OpenStack or Amazon EC2.

Start a cluster

The most simple way to try the whole application is to start a cluster. (In fact, it is the only way at the moment. Running a single-instance CNA is currently not supported.)
We provide a Vagrant file, an OpenStack Heat template and an EC2 Cloud Formation template to start a cluster on your local computer, on your OpenStack cloud or on public EC2:


How to start a cluster with vagrant:

  1. Download and install Vagrant
  2. Clone this repository: git clone
  3. Open a terminal and move to the vagrant folder
  4. Edit the Vagrantfile file if you want to change the number of nodes (VMs) to run
  5. Edit the user-data-master file to change parameters for the first VM of the cluster
  6. Edit the user-data file to change the parameters for all other VMs of the cluster
  7. run vagrant up


Heat Command Line Client

  1. Make file '/heat/heat-zurmo-stack-create' executable
    • $ chmod +x heat-zurmo-stack-create
  2. Change Parameters in 'heat-zurmo-stack-create' file to your liking
  3. Create Zurmo Stack with command: $ source heat-zurmo-stack-create <stack-name>

Amazon EC2


Horizon Dashboard

How to start a cluster with OpenStack/Heat:

  1. Launch a stack on OpenStack
  2. Use the heat template as Template Source. You can directly use the URL:
  3. Use the URL under CoreOS Cluster Discovery URL to generate a discovery url and write it back to this field
  4. Modify the rest of the parameters as you like
