Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-1043) Add AWS Style NIC support
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2013 17:31:16 GMT


Anthony Xu commented on CLOUDSTACK-1043:

Hi Simon,

I'm glad to see ENI feature in CloudStack, I do have some questions,

  it actually allocates IP, should CS limit the number of NIC an account can create to avoid
one account use too many IP? 

 can a NIC be attached to any VM, or only VM in the same network with NIC?
 Will this api apply Security group rules for this NIC? 

since a NIC can only be attached to one VM, I don't think parameter virtualmachineid is necessary.
Will this api remove security group rules for this NIC?

Since the feature moves SG to NIC level from VM level, it might be nice to add content about
SG API behavior changes, and upgrade in this FS.

> The issue is to expose a virtual network interface card (NIC) as a standalone entity
in the CloudStack API that may be explicitly created/deleted and attached/detached from a
virtual machine. The intention is to follow the pattern pioneered by Amazon with their Elastic
Network Interface.
