10.1. Amazon Web Services EC2 Compatible Interface

CloudStack can translate Amazon Web Services (AWS) API calls to native CloudStack API calls so that users can continue using existing AWS-compatible tools. This translation service runs as a separate web application in the same tomcat server as the management server of CloudStack, listening on the same port. This Amazon EC2-compatible API is accessible through a SOAP web service.


This service was previously enabled by separate software called CloudBridge. It is now fully integrated with the CloudStack management server.
