Eucalyptus/XCat image proxy


ImageProxy is the mechanism used to install the same guest image across multiple independent Eucalyptus sites. It downloads images based on their URLs (including support for Bittorrent) and registers them with appropriate cloud mechanism (e.g. Eucalyptus) using local user credentials. ImageProxy is implemented as an Axis SOAP service that is provided with an image URL and a unique GUID and, which returns the EMI of the registered image. If the image is not present in the system, it is downloaded and registered, otherwise the EMI of the previously registered image is returned.
