Joyent is a public cloud host that supports SmartOS, Linux, FreeBSD, and Windows.
This driver requires the Python
requests library to be installed.
The Joyent cloud requires three configuration parameters. The user name and password that are used to log into the Joyent system, and the location of the private ssh key associated with the Joyent account. The ssh key is needed to send the provisioning commands up to the freshly created virtual machine.

provides the underlying functionality to connect to a cloud host, while cloud profiles continue
provider to refer to provider configurations that you define.
