1) OS API is available on the 8774 port. Documentation around authenticating and querying the OS API (versions 1.0 and 1.1) can be found at http://docs.openstack.org/

2) The EC2 API (on port 8773) is based on the Amazon EC2 API and follows the specifications outlined by Amazon. The OS API is more or less a new version of the Rackspace Cloud Servers API which follows the specifications outlined by Rackspace. As such the two API look completely different but provide many similar features around spinning up servers in the 'cloud'. Amazon's API is more RPC-based and Rackspace's approach is more resource-centric.

Hope this helps!
