Deltacloud backend for Heat

Project description

Deltacloud backend for Heat

`Heat(`_ brings orchestration, autoscaling and high availability to `OpenStack(`_. Since January 2013, it's possible to configure Heat to use a backend other than OpenStack.

This project makes `Deltacloud(`_ into a backend Heat that can use. This means you can utilise Heat to provision your deployments on oVirt, EC2, Rackspace and `anything else that Deltacloud supports(`_.


* `Deltacloud server 1.1.0 or higher(`_

* `Heat ``2013.1.g3`` or higher(`_
(i.e. what's going to be the G release. You have to build it from source for now)


#. Install the Deltacloud server and start it

#. Install Heat

#. ``pip install deltacloud_heat``

#. Add this line to `/etc/heat/heat-engine.conf`::


#. Add the following lines to `/etc/heat/heat-api.conf`::

flavor = custombackend

#. Start Heat engine, API and all the other services.


Pass the username, password and Deltacloud entrypoint url via the `X-Auth-User`, `X-Auth-Key` and `X-Auth-URL` HTTP headers to the Heat API requests:

curl -v -H 'accept: application/json' -H 'content-type: application/json' \
-H 'x-auth-user: mockuser' -H 'x-auth-key: mockpassword' \
-H 'x-auth-url: http://localhost:3002/api' \

Development status

Extremely early. Don't expect anything to work at this time. Bugs, comments, patches are very much welcome.
