Rackspace Compute Driver Documentation

Rackspace is a public and private cloud provider based in San Antonio, Texas with data centers in United States, United Kingdom, China and Australia.

../../_images/rackspace.png

Rackspace driver supports working with legacy, first-gen cloud servers and next-gen OpenStack based cloud servers.

Rackspace driver is based on the OpenStack driver so for more information about that and OpenStack specific documentation, please refer to OpenStack Compute Driver Documentation page.

Instantiating a driver

When you instantiate a driver you need to pass the following arguments to the driver constructor:

  • username - your Rackspace Cloud username
  • api_key - your Rackspace Cloud API key
  • region - Which region to use. Supported regions depend on the driver type (next-gen vs first-gen).

Instantiating a next-gen driver

Supported regions: dfw, ord, iad, lon, syd, hkg

from libcloud.compute.types import Provider
from libcloud.compute.providers import get_driver

cls = get_driver(Provider.RACKSPACE)
driver = cls('username', 'api key', region='iad')

Instantiating a first-gen driver

Keep in mind that first-gen cloud servers have been deprecated and you are strongly encouraged to use next-gen cloud servers.

Supported regions: us, uk

from libcloud.compute.types import Provider
from libcloud.compute.providers import get_driver

cls = get_driver(Provider.RACKSPACE_FIRST_GEN)

driver_us = cls('username', 'api key', region='us')
driver_uk = cls('username', 'api key', region='uk')

Examples

1. Working with ‘performance’ cloud server flavors

Rackspace recently announced new ‘performance’ flavors of their cloud servers. The example bellow shows how to use this new flavors.

Keep in mind that this new flavors are currently only supported in the following regions: iad, ord, lon.

from libcloud.compute.types import Provider
from libcloud.compute.providers import get_driver

cls = get_driver(Provider.RACKSPACE)
driver = cls('username', 'api key', region='iad')

sizes = driver.list_sizes()

performance_sizes = [size for size in sizes if 'performance' in size.id]

for size in performance_sizes:
    print(size)

deploy_node(**kwargs)

Create a new node, and start deployment.

In order to be able to SSH into a created node access credentials are required.

A user can pass either a NodeAuthPassword or NodeAuthSSHKey to the auth argument. If the create_node implementation supports that kind if credential (as declared in self.features['create_node']) then it is passed on to create_node. Otherwise it is not passed on to create_node and it is only used for authentication.

If the auth parameter is not supplied but the driver declares it supports generates_password then the password returned by create_node will be used to SSH into the server.

Finally, if the ssh_key_file is supplied that key will be used to SSH into the server.

This function may raise a DeploymentException, if a create_node call was successful, but there is a later error (like SSH failing or timing out). This exception includes a Node object which you may want to destroy if incomplete deployments are not desirable.
