PizzaFactory/Camino updates February,2021

We PizzaFactory Project made some improvement to our service “Camino”.

What’s improved?

Stable and quick booting workspaces

By refine our DNS services, your workspace will be booted 2 to 10 times faster. And this improvement extremely reduces booting failures with Server 'theia' in container 'theia-idead0' not available..

In addition, more containers are cached in our private repository. The download speed of the private repository is much faster than public repositories like DockerHub and Quay. This will affect to faster boot-up.

Our team is keeping to try faster boot-up. Please let us know if you have any troubles in booting your workspaces.

New dashboard

We applied new dashboard provided by upstream Eclipse/Che project.

New Storage Driver on Banco Edition

Banco is a “free beer” edition of PizzaFactory/Camino. All developers can use it after simple registration. We PizzaFactory team have provided it for a long time.


And we were always worried about the cost of storage. The subscription-provided Tavola Edition offers instance-attached storage for a monthly fee. On the other hand, The Banco edition has been around for a long time with low cost but slow CIFS storage.

For readers who have never used the Banco edition, here’s the actual time it took to remove the clones and local clones from

command 1st try 2nd 3rd 4th 5th
git clone 2m32.449s 2m35.325s 2m34.396s 2m38.519s 2m22.648s
rm -fr mruby 0m34.040s 0m27.753s 0m32.928s 0m45.429s 0m25.719s

This is 1000% or more slower than expected.

And to a new storage driver

We, the PizzaFactory team have decided to change the storage driver for the Banco edition.

This storage driver is acting as a loopback device for disk images on CIFS. However, users of PizzaFactory/Camino need not be aware of it. It appears to users as a block device formatted with the ext4 file system. Yes, ext4. CIFS, which was used in previous Banco editions, was prone to problems with file locking and symlinks. We suppose this change will resolve some of the file system-related problems.

Here’s a new storage driver with the same benchmarks as before. You can understand that it has become overwhelmingly faster.

command 1st try 2nd 3rd 4th 5th
git clone 0m6.312s 0m6.172s 0m4.696s 0m6.987s 0m4.344s
rm -fr mruby 0m0.042s 0m0.030s 0m0.025s 0m0.025s 0m0.025s

Performance notes

However, this number is best effort. Banco edition storage offers less throughput and stability than the direct-instance storage provided by Tavola edition. If you need storage throughput, we continue to recommend the Tavola edition.

How to Use

Newly created workspaces in Banco Edition will always have the new storage driver selected. (Conversely, older CIFS-based storage drivers are no longer available for selection.)

It does not provide a way to migrate workspaces already created in the Banco edition to new storage. Make a backup of your existing workspace somehow and then delete it to create a new one.

Any questions?

We provide a free grade support on Gitter. Please cantact us there.

Started to Publish the Content of Plugin Registry

Hello, developers.

The PizzaFactory/Camino team provides a Che-Plugin-Registry instance. The list of plugins are displayed when the user is signed in to the PizzaFactory/Camino service. But he/she could not confirm the plug-in offered before signing up.

Today we are pleased to announce the launch of the new page.

All Che-Plugin-Registry plugins are listed at https: // It will be updated daily.

New pages are generated by the same mechanism as

We suppose the new page will also help you see how different the plugins provided by PizzaFactory/Camino and the original Eclipse/Che are.

Please visit the new page and consider to use PizzaFactory/Camino . You can use “Banco” edition with no payment after registration.

Happy Hacking!
