initialization system for infrastructure cloud instances


Cloud-init provides a framework and tool to configure and customize virtual machine instances for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds platforms. It can for example set a default locale and hostname, generate SSH private host keys, install SSH public keys for logging into a default account, set up ephemeral mount points, and run user-provided scripts.

Various methods are supported for passing data to the instance at launch time, including the standard interfaces of multiple platforms.
