Client API library for the Fujitsu Cloud Service S5 (*)

using XML-RPC API Version 2015-01-30

(*) aka Fujitsu Cloud IaaS Trusted Public S5 (TPS5) or Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform (FGCP)

Note: this cloud service has been around for 8+ years and is being fazed out in favor of the Fujitsu Cloud Service K5

Using this library

If you already have access to the Fujitsu Cloud Service S5, have a look at the demo script:

Usage: [pem_file] [region]

If not, register on one of the Service Portals from the list below. Afterwards, you can access your resources via command-line scripts, web interfaces etc. as you prefer.

# Connect with your client certificate to region 'uk'
from fgcp.resource import FGCPVDataCenter
vdc = FGCPVDataCenter('client.pem', 'uk')

# Do typical actions on resources
vsystem = vdc.get_vsystem('Demo System')
#for vserver in vsystem.vservers:
#    result = vserver.backup(wait=True)
# See tests/ for more examples

Note: this client API library provides higher-level Client Methods, intermediate Resource Actions and lower-level API Commands.

You can also register FGCP as a Third Party Driver and access it using the Apache Libcloud APIs.

Note: to convert your .p12 or .pfx file to unencrypted PEM format, you can use the following 'openssl' command:

openssl pkcs12 -in UserCert.p12 -out client.pem -nodes
