Eucalyptus 3.3 Tutorials- Getting Started

Eucalyptus 3.3 Tutorials
Getting Started

Recently Eucalyptus Systems launched their most eagerly anticipated release so far, the Eucalyptus 3.3 and I couldn't wait to explore it and get my hands dirty with it !!

The following sets of tutorials are just my explorations of Eucalyptus Private Cloud and they are easy enough for anyone to follow. 

Eucalyptus 3.3 is really a next step for Private Cloud platforms with the introduction of awesome features such as Elastic Load-Balancers, Auto-Scaling, Cloud-Watch monitoring and much much more !! 

So without further adieu, LETs GET BUSY !!

The first thing you would want to do is DOWNLOAD the latest release of Faststart from Eucalyptus. This is a power packed ISO with all Eucalyptus components pre-configured and automated, so you don't end up wasting your time with installing each thing.

NOTE: Faststart is recommended for testing purposes only. This is not recommended for Production.

Download the ISO and burn it to a DVD or if you are going to use VMware Workstation for the deployment (As I have..) then just save the DVD to your local machine.

You can DOWNLOAD a 60 day trial copy of VMware Workstation from HERE.

Make sure you have adequate disk space (at least 100-200 GB) and enough RAM (at least 4-8 GB) on your local machine if you are going to use VMware Workstation to host your Eucalyptus Cloud as VMs. 

If you are using Physical servers, then ideally the same configuration should be enough to test Eucalyptus out. (That's the beauty of it !! No need for expensive or high end servers !!)

Below is a setup diagram of how I have planned my Eucalyptus Cloud. Its simple and easy to replicate on your own machines, however feel free to change it as it suites your needs.
