7 Requirements and Technical Notes
8 ================================
9
10 * Eucalyptus is broken into five components: Cloud Controller, Walrus,
11 Cluster Controller, Storage Controller, Node Controller. There is also
12 an optional, proprietary VMware broker plugin, available from Eucalyptus
13 Systems. These components are software services and are arranged in
14 three layers: cloud, cluster, and nodes. You can install the components
15 on the same physical server or on separate physical servers as business,
16 security, and resource needs dictate.

24 described in the installation guide. Your system's and network's
25 requirements will vary based on which mode you choose.
26
27 * Generally, you will need two IP address ranges. The first range
28 is private, to be used only within the Eucalyptus system itself. The
29 second range is public, to be routable to and from end-users and VM
30 instances. Both sets must be unique to Eucalyptus, not in use by other
31 components or applications within your network. Static mode requires
32 only one available IP address range, and system mode does not require
33 an available IP address range.
