lca2011 - deltacloud

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
David Jorm and Stephen Gordon spoke about deltacloud, a project Redhat is running to provide an abstraction of managing cloud instances, which comes with adapters to different cloud providers (such as amazon, redhats cloud services).

deltacloud provides a REST API. It is implemented in Ruby on Rails. They have confirmed backward compatibility across API versions. They support Amazon EC2, GoGrid, OpenNebula, Rackspace, etc. They are trying to support all the cloud providers, so you can move your infrastructure around.

The Aeolus project is an umbrella project for a bunch of things. I'm not sure how they relate to each other.

Their demo started off with firing a browser at the REST API. We saw some instances being started and stopped, and whether or not instances were running or not.
