Hi Aaron, One of the things we're working on at Cybera is an EC2 provisioning module. We've also done a lot of work with OpenStack and our intent is for the module not just to work with Amazon EC2 but any cloud that implements the EC2 API, including OpenStack. Right now it's very much in a proof of concept state, but our intent is to open source it once some of the rough edges are smoothed over.
We'll also be presenting a paper at the upcoming ICA CON 2012 on our work so far.
