SoftLayer HW Cloud Module

The SoftLayer HW cloud module is used to control access to the SoftLayer hardware cloud system

Use of this module only requires the apikey parameter. Set up the cloud configuration at:

/etc/salt/cloud.providers or /etc/salt/cloud.providers.d/softlayer.conf:

my-softlayer-config:
  # SoftLayer account api key
  user: MYLOGIN
  apikey: JVkbSJDGHSDKUKSDJfhsdklfjgsjdkflhjlsdfffhgdgjkenrtuinv
  driver: softlayer_hw

The SoftLayer Python Library needs to be installed in order to use the SoftLayer salt.cloud modules. See: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/SoftLayer
