The current version of DIET Deltacloud has been built on top of the DELTACLOUD8.1 interface, version 1.1.3. DIET is linked to the LIBDELTACLOUD8.2library (version 0.9).
It is compatible with any Cloud Provider compatible with Deltacloud, for example OpenStack, OpenNebula, Amazon EC2, etc...The installation process of the cloud system will not be detailed as it is outside the scope of the current topic. For details on the installation and usage of the cloud system please refer to the Deltacloud documentation. The rest of this chapter assumes the existing installation and correct functioning of a Cloud system that the user can access.
To be able to reserve virtual resources on a Deltacloud compatible cloud system, the Cloud user must have knowledge of the following resources:
The url of Deltacloud
The credentials to access the cloud: Currently, we access the cloud with tenant+user login and a password
The names of available virtual images: DIET does not provide a way to install new virtual images in the Cloud Provider. Hence, services implementations must be already available in virtual images
The available hardware profiles: DIET does not provide a way to specify new hardware profiles, one has to use an existing one. Usual hardware profiles in clouds are m1.tiny, m1.small, m1.large...
