We are announcing the opening of the Katello project. Katello is an open source system management platform and will be the upstream project for Red Hat System Engine, a component of the larger CloudForms product. System Engine is the subscription, content, and configuration engine for CloudForms. It will focus on a system's lifecycle similar to what the RHN Satellite product does today.

Katello is designed as an orchestration layer over best-of-breed projects: Pulp for Content Management, Foreman for Configuration Management, and Candlepin for Susbcription Management.
