ProfitBricks provides an enterprise-grade Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution that can be managed through a browser-based "Data Center Designer" (DCD) tool or via an easy to use API. A unique feature of the ProfitBricks platform is that it allows you to define your own settings for cores, memory, and disk size without being tied to a particular instance size.
my-profitbricks-config: # Set the location of the salt-master # minion: master: saltmaster.example.com # Configure ProfitBricks authentication credentials # username: email@example.com password: 123456 # datacenter is the UUID of a pre-existing virtual data center. datacenter: 9e6709a0-6bf9-4bd6-8692-60349c70ce0e # Connect to public LAN ID 1. public_lan: 1 ssh_public_key: /path/to/id_rsa.pub ssh_private_key: /path/to/id_rsa driver: profitbricks

provider parameter in cloud provider definitions was renamed to
change was made to avoid confusion with the
provider parameter that is used in cloud profile
definitions. Cloud provider definitions now use
driver to refer to the Salt cloud module that
provides the underlying functionality to connect to a cloud host, while cloud profiles continue
provider to refer to provider configurations that you define.
ProfitBricks uses the concept of Virtual Data Centers. These are logically separated from one another and allow you to have a self-contained environment for all servers, volumes, networking, snapshots, and so forth.
A list of existing virtual data centers can be retrieved with the following command:
salt-cloud -f list_datacenters my-profitbricks-config
password are the same as those used to log into the
ProfitBricks "Data Center Designer".
Here is an example of a profile:
profitbricks_production: provider: my-profitbricks-config size: Micro Instance image: 2f98b678-6e7e-11e5-b680-52540066fee9 disk_size: 10 cores: 2 ram: 4096 public_lan: 1 private_lan: 2 ssh_public_key: /path/to/id_rsa.pub ssh_private_key: /path/to/id_rsa ssh_interface: private_lan
