We’ve got two hours worth of demo video from yesterday’s show and tell session for Eucalyptus 3.3 milestone 4 — with every milestone, we continue to improve the most compatible AWS private cloud platform.  ELB, autoscaling and cloudwatch are pretty much in the bag; now it’s mostly spit and polish. For those who don’t want to watch the whole two hours, but are interested in the progress of various features, here’s the timings of the various demos:

At 2:38, David Kavanagh talks about...

In my last blog post I talked about the origins of the EucaStart 2.0 project and gave a stage-by-stage comparison between it and Dan Nurmi's Eucalyptus Repeatable Deployment Plan. In this entry, I will detail our plans for all of this content and discuss how you can leverage it for your business - whether a customer or a consulting company - as well as how you can contribute back to the project.

The Eucalyptus development team host a sprint review every three weeks or so. The event is open to everyone with an Internet connection and it's recorded for those who can't make the live show. I highly recommend you subscribe to the Eucalyptus Users mailing list to get notified when the next event is scheduled - or follow Eucalyptus on Twitter. In the meantime, here are notes I captured during yesterday's review of the Eucalyptus 3.3 pre-release, Milestone 4.

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.

My last posts covered Installation, Configuration, Populating your cloud with images and User Acceptance Testing. This post will cover the support...

In Part 1 of this blog series, “Adventures in NoSQL, part1”, I deployed a single
instance of MongoDB and used Python’s tweetstream module to fill a collection with a data feed from Twitter.
In part 2, “Adventures in NoSQL, part2”, I took this single MongoDB server
and converted it to a highly available replicaset, so that the data was stored on 3 servers for redundancy.

In this post, I’ll explore using Sharding to scale out your data for performance,
so that as...

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...
