Amazon Cloud Architecture
Eucalyptus Compatibiility with Amazon Cloud Architecture
Eucalyptus is private cloud infrastructure software that is 100% compatible with the Amazon cloud architecture. This means that companies can procure (or repurpose) hardware and software assets that can be deployed as AWS-compliant services. Scaling capacity is easy because private and public cloud resources can be combined rapidly and transparently. The only capacity limits are those of AWS itself.
Amazon cloud architecture compatibility is at the level of the Amazon API and tool suite, with few exceptions. This enables a complete management and maintenance capability for hybrid clouds. Strict adherance to standards benefits developers, adminstrators and users.
