Cool thanks for the info Seth. Ansible looks interesting, its a
configuration orchestration component akin to Puppet / Chef is it not?
Does it do any provisioning in itself?
Ansible is more like this:
Combining puppet and chef in one item. Then making it so you can run the
entire tool w/o having to first setup the config mgmt system on the node
and not requiring any sort of central server.
So - ansible is those things and it doesn't make install a giant ruby blob
on a system.
The ec2_create utility on your blog seems to call out to euca2ools to
the actual provisioning on ec2 correct? You'd still want a component
such as Deltacloud to abstractify commands to different cloud providers
would you not?
I doubt it. It's easier to simply use the euca2ools w/the ec2 api against
openstack/cloudstack/euca/etc. Or if need be write an ostack_create to use
I'm not interested in supporting the whole world of clouds with this - we
only have euca and openstack setup - nothing else.
