OpenStack Container Infrastructure Management API - Sample Source Code

OpenStack is a provider of various open source project components that facilitate the establishment of cloud services. It has provided standard APIs that are well suited for multiple implementations. The OpenStack Container Infrastructure Management (Magnum API) allows developers to deploy the magnum command-line client as a communication channel for creating and managing container clusters. Its RESTful properties enable it to use the Advanced Messaging Queuing Protocol (AMQP) to send requests to its magnum conductor portal. Operating as a service that runs in a controller machine, the magnum conductor orchestrates a cluster by simply connecting to heat. The OpenStack Magnum API uses the HTTP method to process requests and responses.
