Ruby Fog

Fog is an open-source, community Ruby library used for interacting with popular cloud infrastructure providers through a single, unified API.

This guide will show you how to programmatically use the ProfitBricks provider in Fog to perform common management tasks available in the ProfitBricks Data Center Designer.

Concepts

The Fog library wraps the Cloud API v3, a REST API that allows management of ProfitBricks compute, storage, and networking resources. All API operations are performed over SSL and authenticated using your ProfitBricks portal credentials. The API can be accessed within an instance running in ProfitBricks or directly over the Internet from any application that can send an HTTPS request and receive an HTTPS response.

The Fog library provides two methods of interacting with ProfitBricks. The first method utilizes an abstracted collection and model layer that is similar across all cloud providers within Fog.

A collection is a group of similar resources such as virtual datacenters, servers, or volumes and allows basic CRUD (create/read/update/delete) operations on collections and models. This guide will cover interactions with the ProfitBricks environment solely using collections and models.

While out of scope of this guide, the second Fog method provides direct request methods that specifically match provider API methods. In the case of the ProfitBricks provider, the request methods map to the ProfitBricks Cloud API methods and parameters. More details on requests can be found at the Fog website.

Getting Started

Before you begin, you will need to have signed up for a ProfitBricks account. The credentials you create during sign-up will be used to authenticate against the API.

For more information on the ProfitBricks Cloud API, visit the API documentation page.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'fog-profitbricks'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install fog-profitbricks

Authentication

Provide your credentials when creating a compute object:

compute = Fog::Compute.new(:provider => 'ProfitBricks', :profitbricks_username => 'username', :profitbricks_password => 'password')

Operations

Data Centers

Virtual Data Centers (VDCs) are the foundation of the ProfitBricks platform. VDCs act as logical containers for all other objects you will be creating, e.g., servers. You can provision as many data centers as you want. Data centers have their own private network and are logically segmented from each other to create isolation.

List Data Centers

compute.datacenters.all

Retrieve a Data Center

The following table describes the request arguments:

NAME TYPE DESCRIPTION REQUIRED
datacenter_id string The unique ID of the data center. Yes
compute.datacenters.get('datacenter_id')

Create a Data Center

The following table describes the request arguments:

NAME TYPE DESCRIPTION REQUIRED
name string The name of the data center. Yes
location string The physical location where the data center will be created. This will be where all of your servers live. Yes
name string A description for the data center, e.g. staging, production. No

The following table outlines the locations currently supported:

VALUE COUNTRY CITY
us/las United States Las Vegas
de/fra Germany Frankfurt
de/fkb Germany Karlsruhe
datacenter = compute.datacenters.create(:name => 'My data center', :location => 'us/las', :description => 'My data center description')

NOTES: - The value for name cannot contain the following characters: (@, /, , |, ‘’, ‘). - You cannot change a data center's location once it has been provisioned.


Update a Data Center

After retrieving a data center, either by getting it by id, or as a create response object, you can change it's properties and call the update method:

datacenter.name = 'My data center updated name'
datacenter.update

The following table describes the request arguments:

NAME TYPE DESCRIPTION REQUIRED

Delete a Data Center

This will remove all objects within the data center and remove the data center object itself.

NOTE: This is a highly destructive operation which should be used with extreme caution.

Update a Volume

You can update -- in full or partially -- various attributes on the volume; however, some restrictions are in place:

You can increase the size of an existing storage volume. You cannot reduce the size of an existing storage volume. The volume size will be increased without reboot if the hot plug settings have been set to true. The additional capacity is not added to any partition therefore you will need to partition it afterwards. Once you have increased the volume size you cannot decrease the volume size.

Since an existing volume is being modified , none of the request parameters are specifically required as long as the changes being made satisfy the requirements for creating a volume.

After retrieving an image, either by getting it by id, or as a create response object, you can change it's properties and call the update method:

image = compute.snapshots.get('snapshotId')
image.name = 'Updated snapshot name'
image.description = 'Updated snapshot description'
image.ram_hot_plug = true
image.ram_hot_unplug = true
image.update

Delete an Image

Deletes the specified image.

The following table describes the request arguments:

Update a NIC

You can update -- in full or partially -- various attributes on the NIC; however, some restrictions are in place:

The primary address of a NIC connected to a load balancer can only be changed by changing the IP of the load balancer. You can also add additional reserved, public IPs to the NIC.

The user can specify and assign private IPs manually. Valid IP addresses for private networks are 10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12 or 192.168.0.0/16.

The following table describes the request arguments:

NAME TYPE DESCRIPTION REQUIRED
datacenter_id string The unique ID of the data center. Yes
server_id string The unique ID of the server. Yes

name string The name of the NIC.
ips string collection IPs assigned to the NIC represented as a collection.
dhcp bool Boolean value that indicates if the NIC is using DHCP or not.
lan int The LAN ID the NIC sits on.

After retrieving a NIC, either by getting it by id, or as a create response object, you can call the update method directly on the object:

nic = compute.nics.get('datacenter_id', 'server-id', 'nic-id')

After retrieving a NIC, either by getting it by id, or as a create response object, you can call the delete method directly on the object:

nic = compute.nics.get('datacenter_id', 'server-id', 'nic-id')
nic.delete
