Just noticed this, (as per my usual luck, notice after the special offer runs out ), and it looks interesting, I'm wondering (can't see from the site) do you have an API to bring VM nodes up and down as desired?
The application space i'm exploring is in the short running large VMs school of fluffy clouds, so API to switch on a few 10GHz node at will is key.
