diskimage-builder is a flexible suite of components for building a wide-range of disk images, filesystem images and ramdisk images for use with OpenStack.
This repository has the core functionality for building such images, both virtual and bare metal. Images are composed using elements; while fundamental elements are provided here, individual projects have the flexibility to customise the image build with their own elements.
$ DIB_RELEASE=trusty disk-image-create -o ubuntu-trusty.qcow2 vm ubuntu

diskimage-builder is useful to anyone looking to produce customised images for deployment into clouds. These tools are the components of TripleO that are responsible for building disk images. They are also used extensively to build images for testing OpenStack itself, particularly with nodepool. Platforms supported include Ubuntu, CentOS, RHEL and Fedora.
