Hallo Aeolus community.
As a follow up to previous debates on Broker concept, I have put

There's some basic configuration management implemented and a very
limited deltacloud driver.
I didn't get a chance to poke around much at the code yet, but wanted to
interject a random idea that popped into my head.
Given some of our recent interest in OpenStack, I was just poking around
their documentation, and I found

I noticed that it has one for VMware, which seemed odd to me since I

run things on. They have one for bare metal, too, and I started
wondering if it would make sense to write a "hypervisor" layer for a
Then I realized... What would really be cool would be a cloud broker
layer. (Though their ComputerFilter seems somewhat germane.) It could
make cloud-bursting really easy, but you could probably do more -- all
the other benefits of a cloud broker.
I know that this is not what you're describing, and I'm not suggesting
you should change it. I just thought this could be an interesting
application of this cloud broker, and a way to get it integrated into
something with a larger backing. Take it with a grain of salt.
