Features of the AWS-Compatible Eucalyptus Private Cloud
Eucalyptus, open source AWS-compatible cloud software, maintains high fidelity with AWS APIs based upon an official agreement between both companies. This means that you can use or reuse many existing AWS-compatible tools, images (AMIs), and scripts to manage your own Eucalyptus private cloud environment.
By leveraging the same tools in the cloud ecosystem that can communicate with both AWS and Eucalyptus, you can enable a hybrid IT environment that brings the best of both private and public clouds. You'll enjoy a controlled private cloud environment that you need for internal development and massive testing, while seamlessly allowing you to deploy your workload on the AWS public cloud to leverage its planetary scale.
