Production deployments of Eucalyptus, like production deployments of any infrastructure software running in a data center, require some amount of health and status monitoring be happening in order to both allow the Eucalyptus/data-center administrator the ability to stay on top of evolving resource situations and to provide invaluable diagnostic information when something is going sideways within the resource pool. Fortunately for all of us, there exists a wide variety of health/status...
Eucalyptus 3.2 introduces a new user console, better troubleshooting and logging, better reporting and support for EMC VNX SAN arrays.
A lesser known fact is that the EBS implementation in Eucalyptus 3.2 no longer requires loop devices. In 3.2, we open sourced a new driver called DASManager, which stands for Direct Attached Storage.
DASManager allows you to use raw block devices like JBOD arrays, as well as LVM volume groups with Eucalyptus. You are no longer limited to 256...
Recently, I saw a really cool study of the costs that companies incur when using public clouds in a "Big Data" context. The cost data is certainly interesting, but I was more intrigued by what the presentation had to say about cloud usage, particularly with respect to big data. For example, on slide 11, it looks like 89% of the monthly public cloud instance usage is at relatively small scale. That is, along with "Big Data" there must be a little code.
Managing data at scale is a...

From the job description:
Extreme flexibility is table-stakes for this role. The ideal candidate will have the following characteristics and experience:
I have been using Eucalyptus heavily (as a quality engineer it is my day to day) for the past 1.5 years. I know the ins and the outs of system and am constantly tracking new features and bug fixes that arrive. With this knowledge it makes me a prime candidate to find out how other pieces of the cloud story can integrate with Eucalyptus.
I run a small cloud at home that I use for development and testing of different software stacks. Some of the tools that I’ve...
Recently, we (Eucalyptus Systems) held an all-hands event in Santa Barbara where everyone in the company got together to discuss our private/hybrid cloud computing goals, projects, culture, and technology. We were honored to have Adrian Cockroft present a talk on Netflix’s incredibly impressive open-source cloud platform, which runs in production using Amazon Web Services as the system’s IaaS layer. From the beginning of the Eucalyptus adventure, we have kept our eyes and ears open,...

At the end of last year, we (Eucalyptus) released version 3.2 which included our user console. This feature finally allowed regular users to login to a web UI to manage their resources. Because this was our first release, we had a lot of catching up to do. I would say that is still the case, but the point here is that we were able to test all of our features against Eucalyptus. As we add features to the user console which are currently under development in the server side, we must have the...
