Getting Started

This section helps you get started using your Eucalyptus cloud. First, we present an overview of the features available to end-users. Then we show you how to sign up for an account, obtain credentials, and set the environment variables that enable you to interact with Eucalyptus via client tools, such as Euca2ools—Eucalyptus command-line tools. Note that Eucalyptus is compatible with Amazon EC2, thus EC2 users can continue using ec-2 tools with Eucalyptus.
In order to use Eucalyptus, you need to:
  1. Sign Up for an Account
  2. Get User Credentials
  3. Set Up Euca2ools
After you have the credentials and a way to access Eucalyptus, you can start using your cloud.
