Hi Hongbin,

We have presented some approaches to this that extend Heat resources to 
talk to native cloud API in EC2 and SoftLayer. Here's the OpenStack Summit 
talk that described what we've done in this space:

Hi Heat team,

I am looking for a solution to bridge between OpenStack and EC2. According 
to documents, it seems that Heat has multicloud support but the remote 
cloud(s) must be OpenStack. I wonder if Heat supports multicloud in the 
context of supporting remote EC2 cloud. For example, does Heat support a 
remote stack that contains resources from EC2 cloud? As a result, creating 
a stack will provision local OpenStack resources along with remote EC2 

If this feature is not supported, will the dev team accept blueprint 
and/or contributions for that?
