Tuskar gives administrators the ability to control how and where OpenStack services are deployed across the datacenter. Using Tuskar, administrators divide hardware into "resource classes" that allow predictable elastic scaling as cloud demands grow. This resource orchestration allows Tuskar users to ensure SLAs, improve performance, and maximize utilization across the datacenter.
Tuskar services are available via a RESTful API and management console through which administrators are able to classify their hardware and define their datacenters. In addition, Tuskar components provide administrators with performance monitoring, health statistics, and usage metrics, aiding in capacity planning and hardware procurement decisions.
For more information, take a look at the Tuskar Glossary.

Tuskar also consists of two sub-projects:
- tuskar-ui - Built on top of Horizon, tuskar-ui provides dashboard access to Tuskar functionality.
- python-tuskarclient - A Python client for the Tuskar API, python-tuskarclient is utilized by tuskar-ui.
We are currently planning for the Icehouse release.
