Cloud Computing Platform
The Eucalyptus Cloud Computing Platform
Eucalyptus software is a cloud computing platform that enables organizations to deploy and manage private or hybrid clouds within an enteprise's existing IT infrastructure.
A Eucalyptus private cloud computing platform is deployed across an enterprise’s “on-premise” data center infrastructure and is accessed by users over the enterprise intranet. The Eucalyptus cloud computing platform is engineered according to design principles that ensure compatibility with existing Linux-based data center installations. Thus Eucalyptus can be deployed without modification on all major Linux OS distributions, including Ubuntu, RHEL, CentOS, and Debian. Further, Ubuntu distributions now include the Eucalyptus software core as the key component of the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud.
