I'm starting to agree with a colleague who says that Proxmox is too obscure to be valuable for our needs. We need to provision new machines, we chose open source and free solutions over proprietary ones in pursuit of flexibility and lower costs but in this case Proxmox working out less flexible and likely more expensive than to just provision against Digital Ocean or the scores of alternatives that do implement fog.io : fog.io is the bridge into a lot of other tooling.

I can imagine that most Proxmox VE admins are not yet in DevOps, but at the same time the DevOps movement is undergoing fast paced growth. The Proxmox project could capture some of that with the right support.

So, it seems that fog.io already supports OpenVZ:

~/.chefdk/gem/ruby/2.1.0/gems/fog-1.27.0/lib/fog/openvz 15:09:08 543$ more README.md


Code:
## Get a specific server


    openvz = ::Fog::Compute.new( {:provider => 'openvz'})
    server = openvz.servers.get(104)


## Server lifecycle


    openvz = ::Fog::Compute.new( {:provider => 'openvz'})
    # Create a server
    server = openvz.servers.create(
      :ctid       => '104',
      :ostemplate => 'ubuntu-12.04-x86_64',
      :diskspace  => 1024*1024 #in kbyte
    )
    server.reload


    # Start a server
    unless server.status == 'running'
      server.start
    end

Why OpenVZ is not listed as a provider is completely beyond me!

Is there a reason OpenVZ is not listed on http://fog.io/about/provider_documentation.html ? Thx, Martin.

There wasn't a PR adding it to the documentation site yet... https://github.com/fog/fog.github.com
Please feel free to add it as a PR.

Yeah, quite likely it was simple oversight. Definitely would welcome the fix/addition. Thanks!
