They all support (or, in the case of VMWare, will support shortly)
injecting data with the user_data parameter to the create instance
The data shows up in different places in the different clouds; for
condor-cloud it's smbios, I believe that's also the case for RHEV 3; in
vSphere the data will show up as a file on a virtual CD; on EC2 it
appears on a webserver at 169.254.169.254
