New EC2 interface to CloudStack

Posted by on in Cloud News

EC2stack is a new project by CloudStack committer Ian Duffy and a buddy of his Darren Brogan from Dublin City University. They did this as part of their third year school project. Building on their previous experience with gstack, a GCE interface to CloudStack, they wrote a brand new EC2 interface to CloudStack.

The interface uses Flask microframework and is written 100% in Python. It also features a vagrant box for easy testing, lots of unittests and automatic build tests (pep8, pylint and coverage) via Travis CI. All around a pretty tight project. They did it on github and not directy in the Apache CloudStack trunk because it was a graded project. They did get permission to put it on github but could not accept pull requests :)

Getting Started with the vagrant box

Getting Started without vagrant

Just install ec2stack with:

CloudBridge is a free, open-source, downloadable add-on to CloudStack that translates Amazon EC2 API calls to native CloudStack API calls so that clients can continue using existing EC2-compatible tools with CloudStack.

CloudBridge 1.0.2 contains a significant refactoring of much of the internal code as well as improvements to the overal architecture. As a result of these changes, every supported command in CloudBridge has been refactored and in many cases actually work now.

Beyond just the code, the documentation has been improved and made more accessible.

You can find the installation package here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloudstack/files/CloudBridge/

You can find the latest revision of the documentation here:
http://docs.cloud.com/CloudBridge_Documentation

Please let us know if you have any questions or problems using this release candidate for 1.0.2 by communicating on the cloudstack-devel mailing list, or filing bugs at http://bugs.cloud.com
