Do you run automated tests for your software, or do you wish you could? Do you need to test on multiple Linux distros or multiple hardware platforms (including those pesky non-x86 architectures you won't find in the cloud)? Or maybe your tests need exclusive access to a physical machine or VM?
Beaker is an integration testing system where every job has exclusive access to one or more freshly provisioned machines. Its unique features include fully customizable installations at the start of the job, detection of kernel panics and installation failures, and support for coordinating tests across multiple hosts in a single job. Beaker is an open source project originating out of Red Hat's unique needs for operating system-level and kernel-level integration testing.
