The promise of the cloud is fast and cheap infrastructure, but that needs also be balanced with security and control. All cloud providers offer API integration to their services; Amazon has a vast array of services and completely documented APIs and even a Ruby SDK , making the work of creating integration with these services fairly easy—if you have the right tools. We created a series of handlers that are true to the API call, then assembled them in a task tree in the Kinetic Task workflow automation engine. This includes creating a security role, security policy, an instance profile, a virtual private cloud, subnet, internet gateway, creating and populating a route table, a secure certificate for logging on to the new server, creating a network interface…and finally starting up a new server instance. And of those 45 seconds, 35 of them are waiting for the server to be available. Can your IaaS do that? Try out Kinetic Task for yourself with a no-obligation trial.
