One of OpenStack core projects Nova also provides many services via its REST APIs. However, current Nova API (v2) contains problems like lack of input validation, inconsistent interfaces and difficult to add a new API implementation, etc. To solve these problems, we have developed a new REST API called "v2.1" in Juno and Kilo development cycles. By using v2.1 API in many cloud services, we will be able to get safer services and interoperability will become easier.

In this session, you will know the outline of Nova v2.1 API, its merits.
