  1. Signup for CloudSigma
  2. Ensure you are using a recent JDK 6
  3. Setup your project to include cloudsigma-zrh
    • Get the dependency org.apache.jclouds.provider/cloudsigma-zrh using jclouds Installation.
  4. Start coding

{% highlight java %} // get a context with ibm that offers the portable ComputeService api ComputeServiceContext context = ContextBuilder.newBuilder(“cloudsigma-zrh”) .credentials(email, password) .modules(ImmutableSet. of(new Log4JLoggingModule(), new SshjSshClientModule())) .buildView(ComputeServiceContext.class);

// run a couple nodes accessible via group webserver nodes = context.getComputeService().client.runNodesInGroup(“webserver”, 2);

// While the portable context is easier, you can always perform the same commands manually, // using the provider-specific context. CloudSigmaClient client = CloudSigmaClient.class.cast(context.getProviderSpecificContext().getApi());

// clone a drive from another drive DriveInfo drive = client.cloneDrive(“source-id”, “name”, size(sizeInBytesYesBytes));

// Note you‘ll have to block until the drive has no exclusive lock before starting your server. Here’s how I do it: boolean success = new RetryablePredicate(Predicates.not(new DriveClaimed(client)), maxDriveImageTime, 1, TimeUnit.SECONDS).apply(drive);

// After your boot disk is up, you can create a server with it as below. Names needn't be unique.: Server toCreate = Servers.small(name, drive.getUuid(),defaultVncPassword).mem(ramMB).cpu(mhz).build(); ServerInfo newServer = client.createServer(toCreate);

// release resources context.close(); {% endhighlight %}
