|Component||User facing?||Component’s role in the capability|
|Service Provider IaaS (Cloud) Services||yes||Some of XSEDE's Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS, aka cloud) Service Providers (SPs) offer API access to their cloud systems, enabling this use case. At the present time, the APIs offered are standard OpenStack APIs, meaning that any OpenStack development environment may be used to develop applications that use these cloud resources.|
