Reggae: cool way of managing jails/VMs on FreeBSD

No docker, no cry

Reggae is built upon CBSD and uses it as a layer to create and configure jails and virtual machines, configure network and to some degree interact with firewall. Reggae also makes creating of development environment fast and easy. It enables developers to use jails or virtual machines for development so that the host system is not polluted with project dependencies. It supports different provisioners: shell, ansible, puppet, chef and salt stack. When not in development mode, Reggae makes maintaining of production easy with helper commands like provisioning already deployed jail. This talk will cover all features of Reggae and some features of CBSD and FreeBSD that make Reggae possible.
