Poppy: An Open API for CDN Provisioning

OpenStack operators have many choices when incorporating a Content Delivery Network (CDN) into their infrastructure -- the CDN marketplace has both tried-and-true vendors and up-and-coming upstarts with innovative new features.

But these vendors often have highly-customized and proprietary provisioning APIs. This can be problematic when an operator wishes to support multiple providers -- or swap out one vendor for another. And these challenges spill over to developers who become forced into codifying the CDN instructions for multiple vendors into their applications.

Poppy aims to solve these challenges. Written as a modular, vendor-neutral API, Poppy incorporates a driver-based model that wraps provisioning instructions for all CDN vendors that support it. Application developers can write their code once, and Poppy will handle all the requisite translations behind-the-scenes.

Poppy's success depends on active and engaged participation by CDN Providers. Much like Cinder, Manila, and Designate use a driver-based approach to connect multiple vendors to a consistent API, Poppy will do the same for CDN Providers.

This design session will discuss with the openstack community and CDN providers on how to coalesce on the ideal vendor-neutral API, and lay the implementation plans for the platform and driver development in preparation for OpenStack Kilo.

As you'll see in the links below, multiple CDN providers are already engaged, and significant design, documentation, and implementation work is underway.
