Poppy is a modular vendor-neutral API that wraps provisioning instructions for CDN vendors.

OpenStack operators have many choices when incorporating a Content Delivery Network (CDN) into their infrastructure -- the CDN marketplace has both tried-and-true vendors and up-and-coming upstarts with innovative new features.

But these vendors often have highly-customized and proprietary provisioning APIs. This can be problematic when an operator wishes to support multiple providers -- or swap out one vendor for another. And these challenges spill over to developers who become forced into codifying the CDN instructions for multiple vendors into their applications.

Poppy aims to solve these challenges. Written as a modular, vendor-neutral API, Poppy incorporates a driver-based model that wraps provisioning instructions for all CDN vendors that support it. Application developers can write their code once, and Poppy will handle all the requisite translations behind-the-scenes.

== Primary Mission ==

Provide a generic and modular vendor-neutral API that wraps provisioning instructions for CDN vendors that support it.
