Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus

Elastic Utility Computing Architecture for Linking Your Programs to Useful Systems (Eucalyptus) is open source computer software for building Amazon Web Services (AWS)-compatible private and hybrid cloud computing environments.

It pools together existing virtualized infrastructure to create cloud resources for compute, network and storage. Besides being compatible with the de facto standard AWS APIs and tools, the Eucalyptus Cloud is modular, distributed, and scalable and supports multiple hypervisors.

    • S3-compatible object storage API for easy storage and retrieval of persistent data
    • Elastic Block Store (EBS)-compatible Block Storage - offers EBS-compatible block level storage volumes which can be attached to compute instances with support for snapshots and Boot from EBS
    • Identity and Access Management (IAM) - provides account, user, and group management compatible with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM)
  • Use industry-standard servers, storage, networking, and virtualization technologies to deliver cost-effective, AWS-compatible cloud services in your datacenter
    • Pool Compute Resources - efficiently pool compute resources for improved utilization and greater cost efficiency
    • Leverage Existing Hardware Investments - deploy Eucalyptus easily on existing, industry-standard x86 server hardware
    • Support for leading open source and proprietary hypervisors such as KVM and VMware vSphere
    • Virtual Machine Image Management - utilizes a virtual machine image format compatible with AWS’s Amazon Machine Image (AMI) format and allows you to create, store, or easily import existing AMIs
    • Auto Scaling - scale Eucalyptus resources up or down based on policies defined using EC2-compatible APIs and tools
    • CloudWatch - monitoring solution for cloud resources and applications running in Eucalyptus
    • Elastic Load Balancing - distributes incoming application traffic across multiple Eucalyptus instances, providing greater fault tolerance for applications
    • Resource Tagging - assign customizable metadata to Eucalyptus resources, categorize cloud resources in different ways
  • Provides S3-compatible object storage and EBS-compatible block storage using industry-standard storage hardware

    • Elastic Block Store (EBS)-compatible Block Storage - provides EBS-compatible block level storage volumes which can be attached to compute instances with support for snapshots and Boot from EBS
    • Industry-standard Storage Hardware - leverage existing investments in industry-standard storage hardware including direct-attached storage, NAS, and SAN devices
    • Snapshot Management - snapshot and protect data stored in block storage volumes
  • Flexible and scalable virtual networking capabilities compatible with AWS Elastic IPs, Security Groups, and Elastic Load Balancing
    • Elastic IPs - mask instance or cluster failures by programmatically remapping public IP addresses to any instance associated with a Eucalyptus account
    • Security Groups - acts as a virtual firewall that controls network traffic allowed to reach one or more instances in Eucalyptus
    • Elastic Load Balancing - distributes incoming application traffic across multiple Eucalyptus instances
  • Web-based console to provide self-service provisioning of cloud resources to users
    • Instance Management - create, manage, and delete instances
    • EBS Volume Management - view existing EBS volumes, create new volumes, attach and detach volumes from a running instance, and delete volumes
    • Credentials and Key Pairs - view a list of key pairs, create new key pairs, and delete key pairs
    • Snapshot Management - view a list of snapshots, create new snapshots, and delete snapshots
    • Elastic IP Addresses - view a list of available elastic IP addresses, allocate new elastic IP addresses from the Eucalyptus cloud to the user's account, and associate and/or disassociate elastic IP addresses with running instances
  • Manage their cloud via REST-based APIs, command line interface (CLI), or from a web-based console
    • Web-based Administrator Console - perform cloud management functions
    • Identity and Access Management (IAM) - provides account, user, and group management compatible with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM)
    • Active Directory and LDAP Integration - integrates with Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and LDAP directory services for federation of users and groups
