I started making some notes on how EBS volume creation can be tracked and troubleshot in Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus 3.X + btw).  I figured this would make a good blog post, so I’ve just dumped all the information into here and I’ll let Google do the rest  I’ll update it as I go along and provide more hints in the troubleshooting section, this will also make it into the Eucalyptus Knowledge Base, albeit in different form and smaller chunks.  I hope this is useful to some.

Creating &...

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...

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

Setting up the booth

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...
