salt.cloud.clouds.joyent

Joyent Cloud Module

The Joyent Cloud module is used to interact with the Joyent cloud system.

Set up the cloud configuration at /etc/salt/cloud.providers or /etc/salt/cloud.providers.d/joyent.conf:

my-joyent-config:
  driver: joyent
  # The Joyent login user
  user: fred
  # The Joyent user's password
  password: saltybacon
  # The location of the ssh private key that can log into the new VM
  private_key: /root/mykey.pem
  # The name of the private key
  keyname: mykey

When creating your profiles for the joyent cloud, add the location attribute to the profile, this will automatically get picked up when performing tasks associated with that vm. An example profile might look like:

joyent_512:
  provider: my-joyent-config
  size: g4-highcpu-512M
  image: centos-6
  location: us-east-1

This driver can also be used with the Joyent SmartDataCenter project. More details can be found at:

Using SDC requires that an api_host_suffix is set. The default value for this is .api.joyentcloud.com. All characters, including the leading ., should be included:

api_host_suffix: .api.myhostname.com
