launched Project Kenai last Friday.
The primary goal of the site is to host open source projects and
encourage collaboration on them.
|Why Project Kenai? Nick Sieger, lead engineer of
the project, comments,
"We need to demonstrate credibility
in building on top of more
traditional LAMP/SAMP web stacks (not just Java EE); and we need to
show viability of Sun technologies and hardware for next-generation web
So how is it running?
From Tim's blog: Project Kenai is using Sun Fire T2000 servers along with a Sun Fire X4500 (Thumper) for storage. OpenSolaris Nevada 70b is the OS. Apache runs in front, using mod_proxy_balancer to connect to multiple redundant GlassFish V2 instances talking to a single MySQL database. The main site is a Rails application running on JRuby, deployed in GlassFish as a war file built with Warbler. Perl, Python, and other various bits of Apache-based bailing wire help integrate Mercurial, Subversion, Sympa (mailing list software) and Bugzilla into the mix as well.
Tim's blog has all the details.
Project Kenai is in invitation-only beta mode -- if you want to try, contact Tim.
