San Jose, CA, November 21, 2019 –(– Calsoft Inc., a global leader in delivering product engineering and professional services across Datacenter and Cloud Technologies continues to contribute in the OpenSource Technology space, keeping up its decade long tradition. With Opensource going mainstream, enterprises are moving to the software developed through open source communities rapidly. Calsoft is breaking milestones by contributing to the Open source projects one after the other, empowering the community. A team of Calsoft’s architects and engineers, recently briefed upon the projects and contributions to the community.


Medhavi architecture revolves around simple compute workload managers and a simple concept of jobs how they are placed and scheduled using Open Infrastructure is being attempted.

Calsoft created an image that allows experiencing the StarlingX all-in-one simplex EdgeX deployment. Calsoft’s contribution to StarlingX is focused on significant reduction of kick-off time for users by introducing StarlingX-in-a-box VM. It also amalgamates EdgeXFoundtry and Kubernetes to handle workloads.


Calsoft made code enhancements to the Akraino Edge family through automation scripts and ready-to-use VM images. Using these images, you can try out an edge use case (IoT) in a couple of hours instead of spending days and weeks.

Fix OOB introspection to use pxe_enabled flag inIDRAC driver
BareMetal nodes fail to pxe boot during OpenStack deployment. The reason for this failure is because we are not checking the actual pxe device interface and updating the port pxe_enabled field. This patch makes sure that every time when the port is created, it checks the BIOS and UEFI boot modes of node and fetch the pxe device interfaces values matching to nic id and then update the port’s pxe_enabled field.
DRAC: Upgraded RAID delete_config cleaning step
This upgrade Delete configuration by cleaning step by replacing delete_virtual_disk with reset_raid_config which is not only responsible for removing Virtual Disks but also removes Global and Dedicated Hot-Spares. It also removes any foreign drives.
Set boot mode in node properties during OOB Introspection
During OOB introspection, it adds boot mode as a capability in node properties so that after preparation of overcloud nodes it will show which node has UEFI or bios boot mode properties respectively.
Add iDRAC driver real-time RAID creation and deletion
It adds a capability to the idrac driver for creating and deleting RAID sets without rebooting the bare metal node.
DRAC: Adding reset_idrac and known_good_state cleaning steps
Implement reset_idrac and known_good_state cleaning steps in the iDRAC driver. reset_idrac clean steps reset iDRAC and also known_good_state performs Reset the iDRAC, Clear the job queue to get the iDRAC into a known-good state.
