Provides a web-based self-service portal to interact with underlying OpenStack services, such as launching an instance, assigning IP addresses and configuring access controls.
Manages the lifecycle of compute flavors (virtual hardware templates) and instances in your Fuga Cloud OpenStack environment. Responsibilities include spawning, scheduling and decommissioning of machines on demand. Floating IP addresses for instances are also provisioned through Nova.
Enables network connectivity and load balancing as a service for other OpenStack services, such as OpenStack Compute. Provides an API for users to define internal and external networks.
Stores and retrieves arbitrary unstructured data objects via a RESTful, HTTP based API. It is highly fault tolerant with its data replication and scale out architecture. Swift also stores back-ups of images and volumes.
Provides persistent block storage to running instances, either on SSD or standard disks. It allows you to create and centrally manage storage devices known as Cinder volumes.
Provides an authentication and authorization service for other OpenStack services, as well as a catalog of endpoints for all OpenStack services.
Stores and retrieves virtual machine disk images with bootable operating systems installed on them. OpenStack Compute uses these during instance provisioning.
Monitors and meters the OpenStack cloud for billing, benchmarking, scalability, and statistical purposes.
Allows you to configure automated provisioning of your instances. This way you can launch multiple instances or complete clusters and network configurations based on templates.
OpenStack is driven by Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) which can be accessed by several means. The most user-friendly interface is the Horizon dashboard. The most powerful and complete interface is interacting with the API directly from your own application.
OpenStack’s user-friendly webinterface is called Horizon. You can use it to create your servers (instances), storage and networks. Besides these basic functionality, it also has many more features to manage platforms and configurations.
More on Getting started with OpenStack
You can use the native OpenStack Command-Line Interface (CLI) tools to interact with your Fuga Cloud environment. For each API, there is a separate CLI tool with its own set of commands.
