Re: EC2 metadata



Yes, I agree it would be helpful to have a definitive list of EC2 API compatibility...something like this... but up to date and maybe drop the Eucalyptus comparison:

Subject: [Openstack] EC2 metadata

Hi all,

I was wondering if this was documented anywhere or if it was just a look in code kind of thing.

I am looking at how compatible the instance metadata api is with amazon, http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/AESDG-chapter-instancedata.html

And I was wondering if that was documented anywhere?

It might be useful in general to have the known compatibility with EC2 documented in general, maybe another topic at the conference...

Possibly with validation tests also that attempt to ensure/check this compatibility against a known "golden" set of responses/calls. I've done this before internally here and it seems useful for OS.
