EC2 driver for nova

Registered by Sachin on 2016-10-26

This spec introduces a driver to enable instance management on Amazon AWS cloud with OpenStack nova APIs. The overarching goal of these specs is to make OpenStack API a standard for multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud management.
OpenStack project is so far focused on private cloud management. This proposal together with a set of others for glance, neutron and cinder aim to extend OpenStack for side-by-side management of Public cloud.

Enterprises are increasingly looking at hybrid and multi-cloud strategy as next phase of their datacenter environments. Public cloud offers flexible on-demand resource while private cloud gives the ability to run workloads securely. There is lack of standard when it comes to cloud management. These specs propose OpenStack API as the solution. Regardless of infrastructure — public or private and technology — KVM, VMware or Hyper-V cloud workloads can be deployed and managed with standard OpenStack API.
