We are proud to announce that SKALI Cloud platform is now certified to work with jClouds – jClouds is a multi cloud framework which allows connection to multiple clouds such as Amazon, VMWare, Azure, and Rackspace. What is amazing is that jClouds provides portable abstractions for cloud specific features, thus allowing the application to move from one cloud vendor to the other with relative ease.
What does that really means?
This can get slightly technical: As you know, you can use SKALI Cloud API to programmatically instruct your cloud servers to either start, stop, delete, and do bunch of things. Now, if you are a software developer, and using many other cloud service providers, basically you need to learn each provider’s API in order for you to control stuff via your software codes.. right?

This is where the folks of jClouds (and a few others like libcloud, deltacloud, etc comes in). They have created their own libraries that talks to many other cloud providers out-there (amazon, gogrid, rackspace, etc), and people will just need to learn their libraries and use them to interact with many cloud server providers — without the need to know each individual provider’s APIs!!
Depending on your coding needs, jClouds is java-based (while libcloud is phyton-based). With the libraries, you can now have SKALI Cloud as one of your cloud server deployment option!
Go ahead to the jClouds website for details on how to fully use the libraries.
Let us know if you need further details.
Create Servers, Forget Hardware.
