Eucalyptus Cloud Computing Architecture

Distributed and Scalable Cloud Architecture

Eucalyptus cloud computing architecture is highly scalable because of its distributed nature. The Cloud level of the computing architecture is comprised of only two components and while used by many users, the transactions at each component are typically small. The Node level may have many components, but each component only supports a few users, even though the transactions are larger. This distributed cloud architecture is flexible enough to support businesses of any size.
