When most IPv6-capable computers join a network they attempt to automatically find a router on the network so they can figure out what addresses to use, how to set up routing, and so forth. On BSD systems like my router, the rtadvd(8) program manages the router’s side of this exchange. While rtadvd is rather flexible, its configuration file is frustratingly terse and its documentation assumes the reader has a fair amount of knowledge already.

For IPv4, my network uses DHCP to hand...

Eucalyptus 4.0 is the next major release of Eucalyptus. One of the exciting features of this release is Object Storage Gateways (OSG). It uses Riak CS as scalable storage backend.

In this post we will setup a minimal Riak CS setup to work with Eucalyptus OSG. For this demo I am using a Eucalyptus 4...
