Last week the OpenNebula project launched a survey to collect feedback from their community regarding what is their preferred interface for cloud consumers and how they should invest their resources in cloud API enhancement and development. The survey was open for two days receiving feedback from almost 200 OpenNebula clouds.
Targeted to OpenNebula cloud administrators, its aim was firstly to have information about the level of use of the two cloud APIs offered now by OpenNebula, namely AWS and OGF OCCI. The results show that:
Then they asked how they would like us to invest our resources to enhance the Cloud APIs. The results show that:
They also received many valuable additional comments mostly stating that "AWS is the de-facto standard and an executive-friendly selling point", "OGF's OCCI is the only independent community-driven standard", "OpenStack API is still not stable and fully documented", and "Google Cloud API represents a big opportunity in the medium term".
Guided by these results, their plans for the near future are to enhance and extend our implementation of the AWS API and to offer OCCI compatibility through the rOCCI component. Of course, if your organization is interested in implementing one the less demanded Cloud APIs, they can provide you with the needed support.
