Fedora has many different tools packaged for various cloud providers, including command line interfaces (CLIs) and software development kits (SDKs):
- CLI: command line tools that allow you to query a cloud provider for information or make changes to your cloud deployments
- SDK: code libraries that integrate into other applications that allow you to query and manage cloud resources programmatically
Cloud CLI tools
Fedora has CLI packages ready to install for multiple cloud providers. Install any of these with
dnf install PACKAGE_NAME:
|Official CLI tool for Alibaba Cloud
|Official CLI tool for Amazon Web Services (AWS)
|Official CLI tool for Microsoft Azure
|Official CLI tool for Digital Ocean
|Official CLI tool for Hetzner Cloud
|Official CLI tool for Linode
|Official CLI tool for VULTR
Cloud providers release SDKs that allow developers to integrate cloud automation into their existing applications. These generally do not run in a terminal like the CLI tools.
