    33== Overview == 
    44 
    5 !ImageProxy is a mechanism used to make the same guest image available across multiple independent Orca sites. It downloads images named by URLs (including support for Bittorrent URLs) and registers them with the site's cloud provider (e.g. Eucalyptus) using local user credentials. !ImageProxy is implemented as an Axis2 SOAP service that, when provided with an URL for an image and a site-unique GUID to name it, returns the EMI of the registered image. If the image is not present within the system, it is downloaded and registered; otherwise the EMI of the previously registered image is returned.
