The Unify project created an abstraction which unifies the description and configuration interface for both computing and the networking. It is based upon today's SDN approach for advanced network forwarding configuration as OpenFlow while computing includes execution of simple as well as complex codes. A complex execution environment is OpenStack a widely used open source datacenter to realize cloud infrastructure.

The purpose of the Unify project is to create a service in order of minutes. With this flexible service creation not only the costs of the service creation can be reduced, but opens new business opportunities to the customers.

The topic of this thesis is the development of the Unify API over an OpenStack domain using an OpenDaylight controller. The purpose of this development is to implement the missing features from the API. The missing features enable the users to configure the OpenStack domain over REST API. The validation of the implemented features is part of the thesis and it includes functional tests.
