I love Amazon EC2 and S3. Who doesn't? But sometimes we just have to rely on our own infrastructure. And our prototype will probably be addicted to EC2/S3 commands by the end of it.
Not to fret though, OpenStack provides the same API, backup/export systems, and features as Amazon EC2's virtual machines.
What is OpenStack
Why do we need it
- Same design and API as Amazon EC2/S3
- Nova vs Amazon EC2 API Comparison
- Swift vs Amazon S3 API Comparison
How do we use it
- Nimbus.io - Amazon S3 Clone.
