Will you add support for cloud provider X?

Our immediate goal is continue extending support for AWS and Azure - the most widely used cloud services - and improving Aether core features. However, we may eventually add support for other cloud platforms. Follow the project on GitHub to track updates. If you have added support for a cloud provider that you use, consider filing an issue or submitting a pull request on GitHub.
