Several days ago was announced about new software from Hashicorp, whose name is Nomad. Detailed description is on site and I will not duplicate it. But why it interesting for me. It is simple. In times of such products as Openstack or Kubernetes very much lacks simplicity. Developers made simple and functional application: one binary file for all functions (server, client), HTTP API, can start docker containers or qemu virtual machines as tasks (list of supported instruments will be grow), logical division (regions and data centers), job priority, and so on.

In perspective I want run QA tasks with help of Nomad (start tasks across nodes without thinking about where and how it will happen), but today Nomad is still very raw product (0.1.1) and the basic functions does not work properly.
