Short Description

Our hackathon challenge is to create a web app for admins to make complex queries on the OnApp Cloud infrastructure.

This is inspired by Facebook’s “Graph Search,” which provides a natural language interface to find content in Facebook. In the context of OnApp Cloud, we want to answer questions like “servers owned by user X behind gateway Y” and “DNS zones of servers on hypervisor Z” in a flexible way which would previously require custom search code to be written.

Using the OnApp API, data about the cloud infrastructure and its resources are imported into a graph database. A translation layer is written to implement the natural language query. And finally, a web app is written as UI to query and visualize the results.
