Infrastructure Manager

Automating deployment of virtual infrastructures on EGI Cloud

What is it?

Infrastructure Manager (IM) is a tool that orchestrates the deployment of custom virtual infrastructures on multiple backends. It streamlines the access and usability of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds by automating the configuration, deployment, software installation and update, and monitoring of virtual infrastructures.

IM is integrated with the EGI Check-in Service and supports a wide variety of backends, either federated (such as EGI Cloud Compute), public (such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure) or on-premises (such as OpenStack), thus making user applications cloud agnostic. IM features a web-based GUI, an XML-RPC API, a REST API and a command-line interface (CLI). It supports OASIS TOSCA Simple Profile in YAML.

The following sections document how to use IM from its GUI or CLI.
