Subject [jira] [Commented] (DTACLOUD-446) Openstack - make it easier to connect to 'public' openstack providers (like HP)
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2013 20:49:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DTACLOUD-446?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13568086#comment-13568086

Christian Karnath commented on DTACLOUD-446:
--------------------------------------------

Hey Marios,

I'm using the separate driver for hpcloud.com in my own environment as a quick and functional
solution to address the region issue in particular and to simplify the connection parameters
without breaking any openstack driver stuff. In the long term I also think it's better to
have a more generalized solution within the openstack driver which cleanly implements the
realms collection and which statically includes public cloud parameters as described by you
in DTACLOUD-443. 
BTW: Thanks for the info about the CLA. This is the first apache project I'm involved in and
that’s why I haven't signed any CLA yet. I will catch up asap.

Christian

> (12:36:20) Christian_: marios: in general - does a speciazlized hp driver makes sense?
i mean hp is a public cloud provider like amazon and for ec2 for example you dont need to
supply a api_url
> (12:36:57) marios: Christian_: hmm.. not sure about that - kinda defeats the object/goes
against the spirit  of openstack
> (12:37:22) pblaho [pblaho@nat/redhat/x-tdojjupsuwxxrqjs] entered the room.
> (12:37:24) marios: Christian_: i mean - unless there's some wild deviation in the hp
implementation from vanilla openstack - but afaik there isn't
> (12:37:41) marios: Christian_: it would mean we'd need a new driver for every openstack
provider out there
> (12:39:35) marios: Christian_: do you think we need a specialised hp driver?
> (12:40:36) marios: Christian_: if the only reason for it is the 'provider url' - we could
consider another solution.. like an additional parameter .... deltacloudd -i openstack -api_url
'hp'
> (12:40:43) marios: Christian_: and we define that somewhere
> (12:40:49) marios: Christian_: or are you thinking about more that this?
> (12:41:04) Christian_: marios: i know... hmm good question. the benefit will be a longer
list of supported providers (not every users know that hp runs openstack) 
> (12:41:16) Christian_: marios: well and the setup is muck easier
> (12:41:28) Christian_: marios: only username, password and region is required as an input
parameter
> (12:42:01) Christian_: marios: it would be as easy as connecting to ec2
> (12:42:43) marios: Christian_: right - then how about what i suggest above then:
> (12:42:51) marios: (12:40:36) marios: Christian_: if the only reason for it is the 'provider
url' - we could consider another solution.. like an additional parameter .... deltacloudd
-i openstack -api_url 'hp'
> (12:43:14) marios: Christian_: (just an example - we can think/discuss the syntax etc)
> (12:43:38) Christian_: marios: additional parameter is fine too (if /api/realms is implemented
for the realm stuff...)
> (12:44:06) marios: Christian_: ok - lets put this on ice for now - i'll file a jira for
it now so we don't forget... sec
