I often sit at my desk, with my eyes closed, hands rubbing against a face in desperate need of a shave, contemplating a dilemma. We face the challenge of building a support organization that can scale to meet our customer’s needs and I can’t help but think we’re missing something. Something that can redefine how we engage with our customers, something that can make their experience that much more meaningful. And just as I feel like I’ve reached my wits end, in walks Graziano with the perfect...

And we’re hiring lots of folks.  If you’re a cloudy person, we probably have a place for you — including positions that can be based anywhere.  We are becoming a truly distributed organization.

Have a look at our jobs page.  Any particular questions, feel free to ask.

We (cpt_yesterday, gholms and obino) left Silicon Beach (aka Santa Barbara home of Eucalyptus) on Thursday and drove up to Santa Clara for my first PyCon.

Driving from Silicon Beach to Silicon Valley

I was a bit leery about dinner (just few week ago cpt_yesterday and I got food poisoned in Sunnyvale), but all went well and it was great to see Mitch.

Setting up the booth

We set up the booth on the morning, just before the keynotes. The booth has been a good...

In one of my previous post I mention our mantra: "Listen to our communityand deliver quality software". To deliver quality software, it isnecessary to have the QA process as a first class citizen. Our QA teamcreated quite a spectacular infrastructure to test all sort ofcombinations and configurations automatically (distro, architectures, versions,hypervisors, networking, images etc ...) to guarantee our users,regression-free releases. They also managed to have fun in the process (checkout...

The first release of Eucalyptus 3 is out, and it’s time to get ready for Eucalyptus 3.1.

There will be a feature listing for Eucalyptus 3.1 on our website somewhere at some point, but that feature list won’t really tell the story.  Here’s the story: Euca 3.1 is the point at which we return to developing code the open source way.

With Eucalyptus 2, we introduced our Enterprise Edition (EE).  That code was a fork of the open source edition, and included proprietary features that...

In my time working for Eucalyptus, I have begun the Eutester project that aims to provide the framework for cloud architects and administrators to validate and benchmark their various AWS-compatible cloud infrastructure options.  Enterprises and research institutions are rushing to roll out their strategies for moving their mission critical applications and services to on-premise, public, or hybrid clouds. The end result of this strategy should be a fault tolerant and...

Big thanks to our friend Shaon, who is our first Eucalyptus ambassador in Bangladesh.  He presented about Eucalyptus at BASIS SOFTEXPO in Dhaka last week.  I don’t know if it’s the biggest computing event in Bangladesh, but apparently they drew 30,000 visitors last year, so that’s plenty big enough.

One of the things I like best about working in open source is discovering what people do with it.  Sure, we want to sell Euca to big companies, help them make tons of money, and grab our...

After having heard about FOSDEM for long time, and this year I had the privilege to attend it. This may be the reason of the extreme cold  spell that hit Europe at that time. I reached Brian Thomason in Hamburg where he presented Eucalyptus. They loved him, and I have to agree with them: the presentation was very interactive and Brian was very charming. We then reached Brussels by train, on the only non-heated car: needless to say I was ready for a hot bath once we reached the hotel.

Day 2 started with a real good breakfast. Again thanks to the organizing team for arranging such a good breakfast. I should say I really loved the weather at Pune after staying at Jaipur for past 1 month specially when it is cold.

My prime goal for day 2 was to have the lab ready for the Eucalyptus workshop at 2:30PM. I would really like to thank every one of the volunteers part of this lab setup in helping me get ready for the workshop. We took around 5 machines and setup cluster...
