The CloudToolbox web application provides a simple system to manage and control users dynamic instantiation of VMs on a generic cloud.
The systems handles final VM user management (on behalf of the cloud provider), users quota, machines templates, gathering of statistings and automatic shutdown of the VMs when not in use.
Using the CloudToolbox web application, an user can request a VM on the cloud, according to a given template. The administrator will then create the machine on the cloud system and associate it to the requester user account with a given amount of resources (ex. limited time, limited cost, etc...). The user will then be able to start and stop the machine from the CloudToolbox web interface when needed, and use it until the resources assigned are over and the machine expires. When the machine is not in use, the CloudToolbox will automatically undeply it, saving costs on the cloud provider
