Ioan -

There is a Python Client that exists out there as well. I recently forked the Github repo,
added some reworks to make it perform better and submitted it back to the original repo, but
it hasn't been pulled in. At the very least, if you were interested you could look at it here:

I was recently using it to build a command line tool for creating large numbers of VMs at
once and deleting lists of VMs to speed up the process.

Hello Andrew,

Thanks for the suggestion.  Andrei Savu (we work together) also
suggested I go with jclouds but I wanted to hear what the community
has to say about this. We're building an app that can reliably
provision 10's 100's of machines across cloud providers.
Right now it's actually a contest, winner gets a present from the
looser. I have to implement Cloudstack and he's got Amazon.

Good luck with your talk tomorrow, maybe you could share the
slides/presentation afterwords.

AWS shim, and gives you all the bells and whistles, retries, abstractions etc from jclouds.
You can also use the CloudStack API directly (I.e., not through the jclouds abstraction layer)
if you need access to CloudStack-specific functionality. I'm actually going to be giving a
talk about jclouds and CloudStack tomorrow here at the CloudStack Collaboration Conference.
