This guide guide [1] is a good starting point to develop new DS or TM
Hopefully our modular approach will save you from editing any existing code.

If you need to add extra information to the OpenNebula resources, make use
of the editable templates. The drivers will get the XML of datastores and
images, but you can always call OpenNebula CLI commands (or API) from the
drivers to get any extra information.

Best regards
