EUCALYPTUS An Elastic Utility Computing Architecture
EUCALYPTUS - Elastic Utility Computing Architecture for Linking Your ProgramsTo Useful Systems - is an open-source software infrastructure for implementing'cloud computing' on clusters. At the moment, Eucalyptus depends on an open source cluster managementsoftware package called Rocks. Rocks is to clusters what Debian, Red Hat,Ubuntu, etc. are to individual Linux machines. It's a packaging and deploymenttool. Need to be using Rocks to manage the software on your clusters. [3]It can be used like AppEngine's client-side tool.[3] One of the uses for Eucalyptusis to make Amazon cheaper and easier by testing code locally without out havingto deploy into Amazon all the time. [4] A first class Cloud Management Infrastructure is not part of Eucalyptus because itis not part of Amazon's API. Eucalyptus is adding some higher level managementtools, but they will be pretty basic. [4]1. It is modular and extensible, implemented entirely using open-source webservice tools.2. It is interface-compatible with Amazon EC2 and uses the EC2 tools directly.3. Version 1.0 implements the EC2 features with the exception of staticIPsaddress (planned for a later release)4. It installs automatically as part of a Rocks 5 installation.
Listed below are some main details. [1]
Web services based implementation of elastic/utility/cloud computinginfrastructure
Linux image hosting ala Amazon.
Interface compatible with EC2
Works with command-line tools from Amazon w/o modification.
Enables leverage of emerging EC2 value-added service venues (e.g.Rightscale).
Functions as a software overlay 
Existing installation should not be violated (too much).
Foster research in elastic/cloud/utility computing
Models of service provisioning, scheduling, SLA formulation, hyper visorportability and feature enhancement, etc.
Experimentation vehicle prior to buying commercial services
“Tech Preview” using local machines with local system administrationsupport.
Provide a debugging and development platform for EC2 (and otherclouds)
Allow the environment to be set up and tested before it is instantiated in afor-fee environment.
Provide a basic software development platform for the open sourcecommunity 
E.g. the “Linux Experience”.
Not a designed as a replacement technology for EC2 or any other cloudservice
Simple architecture and open internal APIs.
Client-side interface
Amazon’s EC2 interface and functionality (familiar and testable).
Virtual private network per cloud.
Must function as an overlay, cannot supplant local networking.
Must be compatible with local security policies.
Packaging, installation, maintenance
System administration staff is an important constituency for uptake.
Version 1.0 Interface is based on Amazon’s published WSDL 2008compliant except for
“Availability” zones correspond to individual clusters.
Static IP address assignment.
Security groups.
Uses the EC2 command-line tools downloaded from Amazon.
REST interface.
S3 support/emulation: not yet, but on its way 
Images accessed by file system name instead of S3 handle for themoment.
Unless user wants to use the actual S3 and pay for the egress charges.
System administration is different
Eucalyptus defines its own Cloud Admin. Tool set for user accounting andcloud management.
Eucalyptus does not assume that all worker nodes will have publicly routable IP addresses.
Each cloud allocation will have one or more public IP addresses.
All cloud images have access to a private network interface.
Two types of networks internal to a cloud allocation Virtual privatenetwork 
Uses VDE interfaced to Xen and VLANs set up dynamically.
Substantial performance hit within a cluster.
Allows a cloud allocation to span clusters.
High-performance private network (availability zone).
Bypasses VDE and uses local cluster network for each allocation.
Runs at “native” network speed (I.e. with Xen).
Cloud allocations cannot span clusters.
