Introduction to Foreman and Katello

Submitted Feb 24, 2020

Foreman is an open source project that helps system administrators manage servers throughout their lifecycle, from provisioning and configuration to orchestration and monitoring. Katello adds content management to the capabilities of Foreman. This talk will give you an idea about the architecture and the provisioning workflow which will be shown in a demo including how to provide everything locally with Katello.


The talk will introduce to Foreman and Katello, explain the architecture and then while showcasing the provisioning workflow I will talk about local mirror with Katello, creating a virtual machine on a Compute resource, installation of operating system and configuration management agent and how to orchestrate the system afterwards with Remote Execution.
