Eucalyptus: An Open-Source Infrastructure for Cloud Computing

Presented by

Rich Wolski, CTO, Eucalyptus Systems, Inc.

About this talk

We will present Eucalyptus -- Elastic Utility Computing Architecture for Linking Your Programs to Useful Systems -- an open source software infrastructure that implements IaaS-style cloud computing. The goal of Eucalyptus is to allow sites with existing clusters and server infrastructure to host an elastic computing service that is interface-compatible with Amazon's AWS, but can also support multiple interfaces such as Google's AppEngine. The talk will focus on specific features of the system that are designed to enable rapid development, prototyping, and deployment of local computing clouds, particularly for debugging and/or application development purposes. It will also discuss experiences with hosting the Eucalyptus Public Cloud (EPC) as a free public cloud platform for experimental use and the ability to use the EPC in conjunction with commercial web development services that target AWS, such as RightScale. Finally, we will discuss our experiences in building and supporting open source cloud infrastructure and point to potential future directions that we believe will enable greater innovation.

Cloud computing is a general concept that incorporates software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and other recent well-known technology trends in which the common theme is reliance on the Internet for satisfying the computing needs of the users. This channel features presentations by thought leaders who cover the key topic areas in this increasingly important field.
