Reblogged from Testing Clouds at 128bpm:

Introduction to Aminator

The Netflix Cloud Platform has shown how a large scale system can be deployed in a public cloud and maintain an extreme level of performance and reliability. As Adrian Cockcroft has said in the past, Netflix focused on having functional and scalable code rather than worrying immediately about how to make it portable.  At Eucalyptus we have been working over the past year on making sure that as...

Open source projects can often lead to an embarrassment of riches that can really be confusing. This is especially true when it comes to tools you can use to interact with your Eucalyptus cloud.

Options include CLIs, SDKs, and different graphical user interfaces. Each has advantages and disadvantages, strengths and weaknesses, and is targeted to a specific kind of person.

Depending on what you want to do, your level of cloud knowledge, and the kind of user experience you desire...

Throughout my tenure as a Quality Engineer, I have had a love/hate relationship with logs. On one hand, they can be my proof that a problem is occurring and possibly the key to tracking down a fix. On the other hand, they can be an endless stream of seemingly unintelligible information. In debugging a distributed system, such as Eucalyptus, logging can be your only hope in tracing down issues with operations that require the coordination of many components.

Logs are...

Got my hands on a draft press release you might find interesting....

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – August 26, 2013 – Eucalyptus Systems, the leading provider of AWS-compatible private and hybrid cloud computing software, today announced the immediate availability of Eucalyptus Mobile Edition 1.0. This release includes EucaSpension, a collection of utilities and leaf springs for mobile application developers to dramatically reduce time to market regardless of programming language or...

In an earlier article (http://www.inthevapor.com/2013/08/building-a-eucalyptus-cloud-lab-and-more/), I provided details of how to build a low-cost private cloud alternative to a “public cloud” that is small enough to sit on your desk, called EucaNUC.

Why EucaNUC? Having your own “private cloud” is complementary (think hybrid) to “public cloud“, Eucalyptus is API compatible with Amazon AWS core services (see below). For instance, you could develop on EucaNUC and move (think burst) into...

As a Eucalyptus Technical Marketing Manager I need to understand all aspects of Eucalyptus and test and compare our competitors products, such as OpenStack, CloudStack and VMware vCloud Director. The requirements of a lab to support all of these different environments can be demanding.

Prior to this posting, what we’ve discussed was virtualizing cloud environments in the lab. Now we will demonstrate a physical lab. These cloud testing environments are used to test installation,...

Introduction

I work for Eucalyptus and spend time in both the private and public cloud.  When working with customers and users THE first roadblock to using the cloud is usually getting an image with some custom bits created, registered and then running.  More often than not this is starting entirely from scratch, in the case of a fresh Eucalyptus install there are no images registered.  The user can either build their first image from scratch or download something from eustore, which is an...

A lot of people have been visiting our table in the OSCON Hack Zone — mostly because of the presence of our Little Black Boxes.

The common question we’ve heard: “where did you guys *get* those things?”

INORITE? They are *totally* cute.  We bought the parts and assembled them ourselves.  They are now Standard Issue to all new Eucalyptus engineers; a short stack of three gives any engineer enough firepower to do serious development and testing on the whole Eucalyptus stack.
