About Debian

The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system. This operating system that we have created is called Debian GNU/Linux, or simply Debian for short. Debian is produced by more than a thousand active developers spread around the world who volunteer in their spare time.

Debian Commitment

Debian has always been the reference in terms of free software operating system. As for OpenStack, it also always comes the most packaged services, with batteries included ie: puppet, metapackages, etc., available in Sid and stable backports.


This product uses OpenStack's Ironic Bare Metal service. Ironic allows users to manage bare metal infrastructure like they would virtual machines and provides ideal infrastructure to run container orchestration frameworks like Kubernetes to optimize performance.

Federated Identity

This product supports OpenStack Federated Identity, allowing it to connect to other OpenStack clouds for Authentication and Authorization.
