Eucalyptus - EC2 Disuptor


Eucalyptus, the Elastic Utility Computing Architecture for Linking Your Programs To Useful Systems (whoever came up with that should get an award...or some more Peyote) while early looks to be a legitimate disruptor to Amazon's EC2. Just when you thought that this market was going to be completely ignored by the Open Source community you are reminded that they are some of the brightest guys in the tech field.

Lots of cools things about this release. One of which is that they follow the Amazon EC2 schema. I.E. instant portability for apps that may want to check out of Hotel Amazon. Much more to do but I have faith that the folks supporting Eucalyptus will get it done. This one has legs.

Take a look at Eucalyptus. Know more than one person that will have a tear of joy in their eye.
