You can manage your resources in the OUTSCALE Cloud using different application programming interfaces (APIs).

Other tools are also available to manage your resources, including the web interface Cockpit. For more information, see Cloud Tools.

The following topics are discussed: 


3DS OUTSCALE exposes its public API. This API is the primary mean to manage your resources in the OUTSCALE Cloud, as all OUTSCALE features are developed for this API first.

The OUTSCALE API is accessible from a single endpoint for all services.

AWS-Compliant APIs

3DS OUTSCALE also provides APIs that are compliant with Amazon Web Services (AWS). These APIs are accessible from different endpoints depending on the service.

For more information about call compatibilities between the APIs developed by 3DS OUTSCALE and the APIs developed by AWS, see AWS Compatibility Matrix.
