Apache Libcloud is a Python library which hides differences between different cloud provider APIs and allows you to manage different cloud resources through a unified and easy to use API. "One API to rule them all". We will discuss the state of cloud APIs and standards and how libcloud addresses the differences in API with a common base API aimed at users of the Cloud. Libcloud drivers also feature extension methods in order to provide more specificity for each driver. We will highlight the Apache CloudStack driver in libcloud and give couple demos of managing and configuring virtual machines in the cloud.
