We have 3 killer features in this recent development cycle aimed at bringing you closer to your cloud provider of choice, more advanced configuration options, and to Just Do More with our introduction of addons.
conjure-up has gained support for native integration with AWS. This support is enabled by default in our Kubernetes spells. This allows the Kubernetes Controller Manager to automatically provision the AWS resources that it needs to integrate with the Elastic Load Balancer or Elastic Block Storage for persistent volume storage.
conjure-up is able to talk to vSphere API endpoint and obtain necessary information to provide the user with more control over which datacenter to use, what networks for primary/external networks, and preferred datastore.

conjure-up has gained the ability to support "addons". This enables anyone who has a product that sits on top of Kubernetes or OpenStack to have a fully working, reproducible, and guided process for getting your application stack deployed.
The beauty of addons is that you can use our base spell, for example, Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes (CDK) and bring in any additional charms required for things like persistent storage (Ceph or Swift). After that, you provide the installation walkthrough on how to install, configure, and setup any prerequisites so that when the installation is complete your users can get started using your product.
We've gone ahead and created an addon for people to try out and experience the conjure-up way of getting you from an installed stack to a fully usable one. Start using your big software instead of learning how to deploy it.
So the goal for this addon can be summed up with the following steps:
So let's get started.
sudo snap install conjure-up --classic --edge conjure-up
Yes localhost and of course Azure provider support coming soon. Hey Microsoft, have your people call my people :)
Let's just verify that Deis is up and running. We're going to check if an admin user and ssh keys are imported and available.
ubuntu@conjure-up-runner:~$ deis keys === admin Keys ubuntu@conjure-up-runner ssh-rsa AAAAB3Nz...-up-runner ubuntu@conjure-up-runner:~$ deis whoami You are admin at http://deis.188.8.131.52.nip.io ubuntu@conjure-up-runner:~$ deis users === Users (*=admin) *admin
That all looks good, now all thats left is to immediately start deploying applications. We'll test one of their Go applications.

Let's check out our new app:

Come talk to us over in https://rocket.ubuntu.com/channel/conjure-up
Currently, conjure-up in our snap
--edge channel contains all the latest features outlined in this summary:
sudo snap install conjure-up --classic --edge
Or to upgrade from stable
sudo snap refresh conjure-up --edge
