Furthermore, although it can be deployed in small configurations, its prime
35 35
target is large installations. If you are planning for the latter, you should
36 36
first be completely aware of what you want to provide, the architecture of your

cluster/s and synnefo's overall architecture before you start deploying.

There are 3 guides for Synnefo. The Administrator's Guide targets system
48
administrators, who want to deploy synnefo on small or large installations. The
49
Developer's Guide targets developers, who want to build on top of synnefo and so
50
describes all the different types of interfaces synnefo provides to the external

Developer's Guide targets developers, who want to build on top of Synnefo and so

describes all the different types of interfaces Synnefo provides to the external
51 51
world. The Integrator's Guide targets developers, who want to actually
52
extend/modify/change synnefo itself, so describes synnefo's indepth architecture
53
and the internals of synnefo components.
