"Deltacloud Universal Cloud API"
25 Apr 2011I'm spending time going through RedHat's Deltacloud set of cloud APIs. They recently recently moved the project to the Apache Incubator and submitted it to the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) .
With the Deltacloud API you can start an instance on an internal cloud, then with the same code start another on Amazon EC2 or Rackspace. This seems like the closest thing we have at the moment, to a true cloud API standard.
Deltacloud Core provides:
- REST API
- Backward compatibility across versions
- View image status and stats across clouds, all in one place
- Migrate instances from one cloud to another
- Manage images locally and provision them on any cloud
