[openstack-dev] [rally] Naming of a deployment

Hi, guys,

In Rally there is an entity that represents installed instance of OpenStack. There is a set of abstractions in the code such as a database model, an engine which performs an installation and clean up, etc. Currently, the entity called as a Deployment, it has a configuration and a set of actions such as deploy and clean are supported. REST API (include server and client sides) is going to be implemented and there is one question about naming convention of entities. I prefer to call it as a Cluster that has a configuration and operations and can be deployed or cleaned up.

What you think about a proper name for the entity? (a Deployment, a Cluster, an Installation, an Instance or something else)

Best regards, Ilya.
