In Part 1 of this blog series, “Adventures in NoSQL”, I deployed a single
instance of MongoDB and used Python’s tweetstream module to fill a collection with a data feed from Twitter.

In the real world you wouldn’t ever use a single instance of MongoDB (or twitter data :–) ) as there is no redundancy
if an instance fails, all your data is gone or you need to take some time to restore it from a backup.

However, we can harness the power of a private Eucalyptus IaaS...

The feedback thus far for the new EucaStart initiative has been overwhelmingly positive. We are grateful for the support and enthusiasm of our internal and external customers as we work to make this a reality. That said, we strive to make sure credit goes where it is due, so I wanted to make sure you were aware of an amazing project Dan Nurmi, a Eucalyptus co-founder and part of the Customer Success team, completed to help make this possible. While I won't replicate all of Dan's work on this...

PHP-AWS是一个用来操作各种AWS服务的类库,目前支持EC2、S3、SQS和AWIS四种服务,也可以用来操作各种与AWS相兼容的其他云服务。这篇博客文章以EC2服务为例,演示如何使用PHP-AWS对基于Eucalyptus的私有云进行操作。

首先从github上下载PHP-AWS类库:

git clone https://github.com/tylerhall/php-aws/

进入php-aws目录,修改class.ec2.php文件,主要是设定身份认证信息和EC2端点。在这里我使用的是桉树社区云(Eucalyptus Community Cloud,ECC)服务的帐号进行测试。

var $_key = “EC2_ACCESS_KEY”;
var $_secret = “EC2_SECRET_KEY”;
var $_server = “http://eucalyptus.ecc.eucalyptus.com:8773/services/Eucalyptus...

After every sprint, the Eucalyptus engineers hold a Show and Tell session, where they share what they’ve been working on with everyone else in the company.  Technically, these Show and Tell sessions are for “product management validation acceptance” or some such blah blah blah — but I like it because it lets all of the engineers strut their stuff, so they can be stars inside the company.

Well, bleep that.  I say let ‘em be stars outside of the company too!

Thus: on Wednesday...

As part of the EucaStart 2.0 engagement process, Eucalyptus Professional Services is providing detailed information on each stage of an IaaS cloud deployment in an open and transparent way for all to modify and implement. We hope this will help guide our users, customers and partners to setup successful IaaS cloud deployments.

Earlier in this series of blog posts, I covered Installation, Testing and populating your cloud with images. This post will cover some important things to...

In my last series of blog posts I detailed the considerations for Stage 2 of the new EucaStart 2.0 methodology, which covered the architectural discussions that should be had before choosing and deploying cloud hardware. In this blog post, I will provide a high-level overview of what you can expect to receive during the third stage of your EucaStart program, and what you should do with that information.

Getting to Stage 3 means...

Introduction

When you first start using Eucalyptus, you are concerned with the intricacies of building images,
configuring virtual instances and using all the variety of API features and tools that Eucalyptus offers.

However, when Eucalyptus becomes a tool your business relies on you need to consider making sure
you can recover the system from a catastrophic failure. In the enterprise this usually means making
adequate backups and being able to restore the whole...

在我的前一篇博客文章《通过AWS SDK for Java操作Eucalyptus私有云(1)》中,我们通过一段简单的Java代码演示了可以使用AWS SDK for Java来对基于Eucalyptus的私有云进行操作。在这篇博客文章中,我们进一步介绍AWS SDK for Java中一些常用的API,并以Eucalyptus社区云服务(Eucalyptus Community Cloud)为测试环境对这些代码进行测试。

// 首先导入必要的类库
import java.util.*;
import com.amazonaws.*;
import com.amazonaws.auth.*;
import com.amazonaws.services.ec2.*;
import com.amazonaws.services.ec2.model.*;

// 定义一个类
public class AwsConsoleApp
{

// 必要的登录信息...

Eucalyptus是一个开放源代码的、与AWS高度兼容的云管理平台。以AWS为参考原型的各种云管理平台(例如OpenStack)都在某种程度上兼容AWS API,但是只有Eucalyptus将忠诚地兼容AWS API上升到企业战略与核心竞争力的层面。忠诚地兼容AWS API意味着客户能够在私有云环境中继续使用各种现有的与AWS API相兼容的工具、脚本和映像(AMI),能够在基于Eucalyptus的私有云和AWS公有云之间迁移负载和数据,或者是将基于Eucalyptus的私有云作为开发测试环境但是将AWS公有云作为生产环境。

但是,理想与现实之间总是存在差距的。Eucalyptus以AWS为原型不断地完善自身所提供的功能,而AWS也在不断地对现有的服务进行改进。在目前这个阶段,Eucalyptus还无法100%地实现AWS所提供的各种功能和特性。举个例子来说,一个基于最新版本的AWS SDK for Java的应用,直接用来管理一个基于Eucalyptus的私有云,可能还是会遇到一些意想不到的问题。因此,Eucalyptus公司对AWS SDK for...
