Donabe is an OpenStack service that enables the creation of recursively designed application containers, consisting of Nova Servers and Quantum Networks and Routers. It is built on the Ruby on Rails framework, and is to be released as a free, open source application in the near future.

Development is currently ongoing. More information will be made available after Donabe is officially unveiled at the OpenStack Summit in April 2013.


Donabe was first proposed by Debo Dutta and Rick Clark at the OpenStack Essex Developers Summit in 2011. Information and links to the original proposal can be found on the OpenStack wiki here.

Further Development

Development of Donabe started in earnest in early 2013 in the CTO Cloud Lab under Lew Tucker, after the application template system in Curvature was deemed useful enough to be broken out into a separate service. Donabe and Curvature have remained closely connected, with Curvature providing full GUI support for all Donabe services.


Installation instructions will be made available once Donabe has been released to the public.
