Automate For Faster & More Productive Workflows

Native API

The Advantages of Native API

With an API (Application Programming Interface), you control your Cloud resources. Applications that are independent of each other
can work together and exchange data. 

NETWAYS Cloud: Infrastructure as Code has never been easier!

Latest Technology

Automate & Integrate

Our Cloud utilizes OpenStack APIs for its Compute, Storage and Network component. This allows for automation & integration with build pipelines, configuration tools, and application layers.

Standard API

The OpenStack APIs of the NETWAYS Cloud can be combined with numerous DevOps tools. Keep using what you know and what works for you!

What Is Nice To Know

What is the OpenStack API?

The OpenStack API is a set of RESTful web services that provide a programmatic interface for interacting with OpenStack cloud services. OpenStack is an open-source cloud computing platform that provides a suite of services for building and managing public and private cloud infrastructures.

The OpenStack API is designed to be simple, flexible, and easy to use. It allows developers to access and manage cloud resources such as virtual machines, storage volumes, and network resources through a standard set of HTTP requests and responses.

Can I use Terraform, Ansible, or Puppet to control my infrastructure?

Yes, you can use Terraform, Ansible, and Puppet to control and manage OpenStack cloud resources. These tools provide a flexible and powerful way to automate infrastructure deployment, configuration, and management.

Terraform is a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. It supports a wide variety of cloud providers, including OpenStack, and allows you to define infrastructure as code using a declarative syntax. With Terraform, you can define OpenStack resources such as compute instances, networks, and storage volumes, and manage their lifecycle through a simple command-line interface.

Ansible is a configuration management tool that allows you to automate server provisioning, configuration, and deployment. It uses a simple YAML-based syntax to define configuration files, which can be easily versioned and shared. With Ansible, you can automate the installation and configuration of OpenStack services, as well as manage the lifecycle of cloud resources such as virtual machines and network infrastructure.

Puppet is another configuration management tool that allows you to automate the deployment and configuration of software and infrastructure. It uses a declarative language to define resources and dependencies, and provides a powerful and flexible way to manage complex infrastructure. With Puppet, you can manage OpenStack services, deploy applications, and manage cloud resources using a simple and easy-to-understand syntax.

Do I have to take care about a rate limiting using the API?

By default, the OpenStack API rate limit is set to 10 requests per second per project for most APIs. However, this limit can be configured and adjusted as needed by OpenStack administrators. Different APIs may have different rate limits, and the rate limits may vary based on the user’s role and permissions.

When the rate limit is exceeded, the API will return a “429 Too Many Requests” response code, indicating that the user has exceeded the allowed rate of requests. The user will need to wait until the rate limit is reset before making additional requests.
