Eucalyptus is a Linux-based software architecture that implements
scalable private and hybrid clouds within your existing IT
infrastructure. Eucalyptus allows you to provision your own
collections of resources (hardware, storage, and network) using a
self-service interface on an as-needed basis.
You deploy a Eucalyptus cloud across your enterprise’s on-premise
data center. Users access Eucalyptus over your enterprise's
intranet. This allows sensitive data to remain secure from external
intrusion behind the enterprise firewall.
You can install Eucalyptus on the following Linux distributions:
- CentOS 6
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
