How does it work?

Fuga Cloud is an open source cloud computing platform. It includes a plethora of different projects, which interact and form the OpenStack ecosystem. The figure below shows the basic components that form the OpenStack ecosphere and how they interact. Together, they create a rich set of features and the possibility for massive scalability. Each service offers an application programming interface (API) which, combined, form a flexible and customizable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution.

How to use Fuga Cloud?
