This is an early version of a deck I am working on to describe the clients and tools that you can use with CloudStack. CloudMonkey is covered in another presentation, apache libcloud is a python package which provides abstractions to many cloud providers, deltacloud is a ruby abstraction layer similar to libcloud which provides a standard CIMI frontend, jclouds is a leading abstraction for java applications. Apache Whirr builds on jclouds to provide on-demand big data infrastructure on clouds.
All tools are within the Apache Software Foundation, either top level projects of in the incubator (jclouds). this makes the ASF a one stop shop for your cloudplatform, your big data solution and your cloud clients. With Stratos from WSO2 joining the incubator, this means that the ASF now has a PaaS solution, completing the cloud ecosystem. One foundation, clear governance and processes, IaaS, BigData, PaaS and clients.
