I am the API Evangelist. Not in the sense that I’m evangelizing a single API to you--In the sense that APIs are important for everyone to be aware of. I’m paying attention to not just the technical, but the business and politics of the web API movement.

The DeltaCloud API provides a single API interface to work with multiple cloud computing providers.

With the DeltaCloud API you can start an instance on an internal cloud, then with the same code start another on Amazon EC2 or Rackspace.

The DeltaCloud Core provides a RESTful API, and backward compatibility across different versions of support cloud platforms.


Deltacloud API supports the following providers:

DeltaCloud is open-source and downloadable by anyone.

Currently there is no available DeltaCloud API as a service.   Anyone can download and deploy, but there is no Softare as a Service (SaaS) version.

I smell an opportunity for someone to offer as a service, and provide an on-demand universal cloud computing web API.
