The freezer module is a part of OpenStack, an effort by the OpenStack infrastructure team to provide continuous integration testing and code review for OpenStack and OpenStack community projects not part of the core software. The module its self is used to flexibly configure and manage the distributed backup restore and disaster recovery as a service platform for OpenStack.

Module Description

The freezer module is a thorough attempt to make Puppet capable of managing the entirety of freezer. This includes manifests to provision region specific endpoint and database connections. Types are shipped as part of the freezer module to assist in manipulation of configuration files.


What the freezer module affects

  • Freezer, the distributed backup restore and disaster recovery as a service platform for OpenStack.

Installing freezer

freezer is not currently in Puppet Forge, but is anticipated to be added soon.  Once that happens, you'll be able to install freezer with:
puppet module install openstack/freezer

Beginning with freezer

To utilize the freezer module’s functionality you will need to declare multiple resources.



freezer is a combination of Puppet manifest and ruby code to delivery configuration and extra functionality through types and providers.


  • All the freezer types use the CLI tools and so need to be ran on the freezer node.


This module has beaker-rspec tests

To run the tests on the default vagrant node:

bundle install
bundle exec rake acceptance
