If clouds would follow this standard it would make it easier to contextualize images: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/AESDG-chapter-instancedata.html

Common problem with finding the public IP of the machine:

  • http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data/public-ipv4 is empty although VMs have public IPs
  • http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data/local-ipv4 contains the public IP

Also, it would be preferable if each OpenStack cloud changed the default .novalocal suffix to something site-specific.
