CoreOS is a Linux distribution that allows easy deployment of Docker environments.  With CoreOS, users have the ability to deploy clustered Docker environments,  or deploy zero downtime applications.  Recently, I have blogged about how to deploy and use Docker on Eucalyptus cloud environments. This blog will focus on how to leverage cloud-init configuration with a CoreOS EMI to manage instance storage that will be used by Docker containers on Eucalyptus 4.0.  The same cloud-init...

As developers, we sometimes run into problems that are somewhat… challenging. That’s part of the fun of writing code though. I like trying to find clever ways to solve a problem. This was the case when trying to integrate memcached into the Eucalyptus Management Console.

Version 4.0 of the console uses Gunicorn which utilizes separate worker processes to handle requests. To implement any kind of effective caching, we’d need a shared cache. Memcached is a pretty obvious choice. Since...

In this week's Eucalyptus and cloud news roundup, we will dig into some familiar topics, including hybrid cloud, the perceived struggle between software such as Eucalyptus and OpenStack and the main benefits of private cloud. On top of all that, we'll take a step back to look at the impact of copyright on cloud APIs and the network performance of various major cloud providers. There's plenty to cover, so read on as we recap some of the week's biggest cloud stories.

Is interest in cloud...

On paper, private cloud is the ideal computing architecture for any organization that needs:

Control of its data, whether for reasons of security or compliance with applicable regulations Minimum levels of performance for critical, complicated workloads Predictable, easily managed expenditures, with most outlays on the CAPEX rather than OPEX side

Moreover, the private cloud can potentially provide the best of both worlds in terms of IT. The elasticity and on-demand service of...

The meteoric rise of the public cloud has certainly created pressure for companies with existing IT infrastructure and data center operators to emulate the speed and efficiency of Web-scale providers. Public clouds make it incredibly convenient to spin up developer resources in an instant, creating pockets of "shadow IT" and leaving on-premises hardware underutilized. But as more and more internal users forego on-prem infrastructure resources to flock to the public cloud, costs can quickly...
