- I like the extension approach
- do you intent to hook GLUE into the <Info> part in your
XML example, or into similar places in the API?
Optionally at least?
<Info>4Gb, 2 CPU, 1 disk, 2 nic virtual machine</Info>
- why the purl.org/occi namespace? OGF has an established
namespace for XML schemata, see http://schemas.ogf.org/,
and GFD.84 on http://www.ogf.org/docs/?cp
A question about the machine control extension: I am not
overly familiar with the capabilities offerred by the
various discussed backends, but is a 'CLONE' operation
something which is being considered? That would be
basically a CREATE op which refers to a running instance
instead of reffering to an image and instance description
(or whatever your CREATE needs as input). How would that
map to your state machine? As suspend/resume (for the time
a snapshot is taken)? Similar for 'MIGRATE'...
Sorry if that question is off target...
Nothing is ever easy.
