The Eucalyptus User Console can be used standalone, but generally people run Tornado apps (as this is) behind a reverse proxy. There are a few reasons, but most commonly, it is so SSL termination can be handled in one place and several Tornado instances can be managed behind one front end. FriendFeed (who developed Tornado) talked about configuring one Tornado instance per core behind Nginx as the reverse proxy. This is what I’ll talk about in this post.

This is the part III of the Eucalyptus Open QA blog series that cover various topics on the quality assurance process for Eucalyptus’s new user console.

On this blog, we would like to share the information on how we monitors the traffic on the user console proxy, using the Linux command ‘tcpdump‘ and its rendering application ‘tcpdumpster‘, to derive and understand the behaviors of users when interacting with the user console.

I have been playing with FastStart and Silvereye for a while, as well as worked with the single-cloud script. I also wrote about the setup I use for testing Eucalyptus on a laptop. The latest tweets, and blogs clocked a Eucalyptus installation in less than 15 minutes. Quite impressive I have to say. Yet I think it's important not to loose prospective on the ultimate goal for an on-premise cloud.

On Premise Cloud as Infrastructure

I see the installation of  Eucalyptus (or any on-...

Recently, I had the opportunity to sit in on a few meetings at Eucalyptus Systems, Inc. discussing Elastic Load Balancing implementation ideas for Eucalyptus 3.3.  Elastic Load Balancing is under the “Future Development Directions” on the Eucalyptus Cloud Roadmap.  Part of my involvement was to evaluate the Zen Load Balancer.   The first question that I [...]

One of the most common questions I’ve heard asked from Eucalyptus users is this one: “how easy is it to convert an AMI to an EMI?” And the answer is: not as easy as it should be.

We’ve got some process guidelines on our wiki, thanks to Tim Gerla — but we should have the ability to do much of this automagically.  So that’s the tool I’ve started work on.  In the spirit of “release early release often”, I’ve uploaded a very early iteration of this tool.  Find the brand new Github repo...

I'm happy to see Release 3.2 of Eucalyptus see the light of day because it signals an important shift in the adoption cycle. Users and IT administrators now depend on Eucalyptus for their businesses and, as a result, it needed to be easier to use and with which to live. In the 3.2 release, Eucalyptus includes a number of features that make it friendlier to its users and and administrators.

When we started to develop Eucalyptus, we decided early on that we would make it work before...

If you are building out your internal Dev & Test capabilities, Eucalyptus 3.2 may be just what you need. In a few weeks we are officially releasing version 3.2 which has been available through nightly builds for the enthusiastic user community for some time. The new version has been toughened on the inside and softened on the outside. All in all, here is an open source cloud platform for which agility is a key ability.

Agility means that you can undertake bigger changes faster...

In this article, I will go over the technical details on how in Eucalyptus, we used Selenium to simulate a large number of cloud user workload in order to ensure the quality of user experience in the new Eucalyptus user console.

As covered in my previous blog, Eucalyptus is coming out with a new user console, that is browser-based and intuitive to use, thus playing a key role in promoting the cloud adoption among IT organizations and enterprises.  But, the challenge was to...
