Connect to your OnMetal Server through cloud-init

cloud-init works out of the box with OnMetal servers. Therefore, you can
create a cloud-config.yml file as follows:

- path: /hello-world
permissions: 755
content: |
#!/bin/bash -e
echo "hello world"

Next, run the following command in the command line, by using your Secure Shell (SSH) key name:

supernova iad boot --flavor onmetal-general2-medium --image b59fc7a5-de35-4fd3-87f8-c5f2e390f1ad --user-data cloud-config.yml --key-name pquerna

When the server starts, you can see a /hello-world Bash script in your OnMetal instance.
