VMware has released Java and Python open-source software development kits (SDKs) for the VMware vCloud API, making it easier for developers and ISVs to jumpstart their projects by flexibly leveraging private and public cloud services. The new Python and Java SDKs for the VMware vCloud API will simplify and accelerate developers’ ability to leverage VMware vCloud services.
“We are working aggressively to expand the VMware vCloud ecosystem and accelerate market availability of open-source client libraries for the VMware vCloud API,” said Dan Chu, vice president, cloud infrastructure and services, VMware. “Our ISV community has embraced our investment in the VMware vCloud Initiative and is integrating key solutions as part of innovative services from VMware vCloud Express providers such as Terremark.”
Key open-source client libraries and tools for the VMware vCloud API are now available from standard cloud software resources including Dasein, jclouds and libcloud, underscoring the strong interest from the open-source community in supporting the VMware vCloud Initiative. These new libraries and tools will help make the VMware vCloud API more accessible to a large and diverse set of developers, ISVs and solution partners.
