Subject Re: [Discussion] OVM 3.x Integration in the CloudStack
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2012 00:05:35 GMT
Hi Jason,
The answer of your question can be seen by following reply.
Frank(Citrix) and our company(KT) developed OVM 2.x integration.
And we also want to integrate OVM 3.x.
Hi Frank,
I tested Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c's(EM12c) Cloud API.
The concept of EM12c is similar with CloudStack and works well. (But
still lack of functionality)

The possible APIs are:
- GetCloud	 Retrieving Cloud Details
- GetZone	 Retrieving Zone Details
- GetVDC	         Retrieving VDC Details
- DeployVM	 Deploy VM in Zone or VDC
- GetVM	          Retrieving VM Details
- ControlVM	 Control VM status
- GetServiceTemplates	 Retrieving Service Templates Details

But Enterprise Manager Ops Center(may be sub system of Enterprise
Manager) has full functionality of infrastructure.
So CloudStack can use EM12c for VM control and OpsCenter for
infrastructure control(like create zone, pod, network ...)

I think this is directly related with VM Manager's internal API which
is tcp or tcps connection.
If oracle provides VM Manager's internal API, CloudStack can use it
like Vmware integration.

In addition, EM12c can synchronize contents with VM Manager. So we can
use CloudStack and VMManager and EM12c.

I hope Jason will give us more clues.
