The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) API is a web service that enables you to launch and manage Linux/UNIX and Windows server instances in Amazon's data centers. Giving users the ability to "compute" in the cloud, it provides users with complete control of their computing resources and lets them run on Amazon's computing environment. Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing users to pay only for capacity that is actually used.
Amazon EC2 provides two APIs: SOAP and REST. The same XML body is returned in both the REST API and SOAP API. The WSDL for each supported API version is available from the following URI:
The WSDL should be treated as a moving target as it will always map to the latest release of the Amazon EC2 SOAP API.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
This Amazon EC2 Node.js library can access Amazon EC2 API and Product Advertising API, both part of Amazon Web Services. Amazon EC2 is about application development stored in a secure cloud. In this library, submitted by user mirkok5, developers can find usage, credentials, metadata API, IAM roles, and tests.
Boto is a Python library that provides an interface to many of Amazon's web services. So far, all of the library's features work with Python 2.6 and 2.7. Compatibility with Python 3.3+ is in the works.
This is a simple API to access Amazon's SQS, EC2, SimpleDB and DevPay LS web services. It uses the QUERY interfaces and patterns the methods after those available from Amazon in their SOAP client for these services.
RightScale's AWS gems provide Ruby interfaces to four key Amazon Web Services: EC2, S3, SQS, and SDB. The gems use Amazon's REST and query interfaces to provide full programmatic control. An optional HTTP layer retries and clears transient error
