Network Compatibility by Eucalyptus Networking Modes

  • Managed
    Layer 2 and 3 VM isolation; uses built-in DHCP service
    Requires a cloud switch to forward a configurable range of VLAN-tagged packets, and requires that any external DHCP service be isolated from Eucalyptus VMs
  • Managed (no VLAN)
    Layer 3 VM isolation; uses built-in DHCP service and requires that any external DHCP service be isolated from Eucalyptus VMs.
  • Static
    No VM isolation, uses built-in DHCP service for static IP assignment
    Requires that any external DHCP service on the network be isolated from Eucalyptus VMs
  • System
    No VM isolation, no automatic address handling
    Uses existing external DHCP

    8 Cores, 2.4GHz, 8GB RAM, 500GB Disk space. (multiple disks in a RAID 5/10 recommended)
    High Availability (HA) configurations must be equal in capacity.
  • Node Controllers
