Eucalyptus and Amazon work together to expand cloud adoption
Offering a common set of APIs, management tools and cloud services will make it far easier for organizations to move workloads into and out of cloud services
Eucalyptus - a company co-founded in 2007 by professor Rich Wolski of the Computer Science department at UCSB - has announced a major collaborative relationship with Amazon Web Services. The agreement, which facilitates moving cloud workloads from Eucalyptus-based environments into and out of Amazon’s AWS, was reviewed by ZDNet Virtually Speaking blogger Dan Kusnetzky.
"This means that Amazon will support Eucalyptus and Eucalyptus will enhance its product to offer implementations of popular AWS services, such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)," wrote Kusnetzky.
"By working together, Eucalyptus and AWS see the opportunity to accelerate the adoption of cloud computing and increase the overall size of the market. By making the market bigger, both would see increased penetration and revenues."
