Interest in open source private and hybrid cloud computing is surging as business units press their IT departments to deliver the kinds of self-service, on-demand infrastructure resources readily available from public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. Many IT organizations, however, are not yet ready to make the transition from interest to action. They do not have the infrastructure or process maturity to provide the dynamic elasticity found in the public cloud.
The immense benefits of open source private clouds (and hybrid clouds) are compelling. With consistent services and compute capacity available on-demand for application development and QA teams, IT can step out of the way and focus on higher-value tasks—freeing up resources and budget for faster product delivery and new innovation.
While there are numerous options for open source private clouds, including OpenStack and CloudStack, Eucalyptus provides the highest compatibility with market-leading public cloud provider AWS, enabling hybrid cloud capability that allows images and workloads to be moved between public and private clouds. Learn how to choose the right open source private cloud platform for your organization.
