Airship: Elevate Your Infrastructure!
Airship is a collection of open source tools for automating cloud provisioning and management. Airship provides a declarative framework for defining and managing the life cycle of open infrastructure tools and the underlying hardware. These tools include OpenStack for virtual machines, Kubernetes for container orchestration, and MaaS for bare metal, with planned support for OpenStack Ironic.
The Airship community is excited to announce its v1.0 release in conjunction with the Open Infrastructure Summit Denver. Airship v1.0 delivers a wide range of enhancements to security, resiliency, continuous integration, and documentation, as well as upgrades to the platform, deployment and tooling features. The v1.0 milestone marks production readiness of Airship for the enterprise.
More information on the v1.0 release, its features, and how to deploy it can be found here.
Try It Out
To experiment with a single-node deployment of Airship in a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 VM, visit https://airshipit.org.
To download the Airship Seaworthy multi-node Airship reference deployment and continuous integration pipeline, see the Check It Out section.
The VM is managed using OpenStack Horizon. For information on OpenStack, see the OpenStack documentation at https://docs.openstack.org/. The undercloud platform is managed using Airship Shipyard. For information about Shipyard, see the Documentation section.

Airship is free and open source software. The code is available under the Apache 2 license.
Airship has a number of independent components, and we welcome new contributors to all of them! Good ways to get started include:
- Take a look at Treasure Map to see how the pieces fit together.
- Join the weekly design meeting to see what work is in the hopper (see Get In Touch, below).
- Introduce yourself in the IRC channel #airshipit (see Get In Touch).
- Take a look at unassigned work items in the OpenStack Airship StoryBoard and volunteer for one.
Story and Issue Tracking
Feel free to browse Airship stories and issues at the OpenStack Airship StoryBoard and even volunteer for an unassigned item.
StoryBoard projects have been created for each of the Airship components. For descriptions of the components, see the Treasure Map (or the Check It Out section above). Follow these links to the StoryBoard projects:
