EUCALYPTUS: Elastic Utility Computing Architecture
- for Linking Your Programs to Transiently Useful Systems
+ for Linking Your Programs To Useful Systems
EUCALYPTUS is an open source service overlay that implements elastic
computing using existing resources. The goal of EUCALYPTUS is to allow
sites with existing clusters and server infrastructure to co-host an
-elastic computing service that is interface-compatible with Amazon's EC2.
+elastic computing service that is interface-compatible with Amazon's
+EC2.
-Because EUCALYPTUS is designed to function as an overlay, it must be able to
-incorporate resources from different clusters or pools. For example,
-EUCALYPTUS allows its administrator to set up a "cloud" that permit users to
-virtualized OS instances on a number of clusters transparently. Enabling the
-necessary network interconnectivity in a way that is secure and portable is
-one novel feature of EUCALYPTUS. Another stems from its ability to provide
-interface compatibility with the existing Amazon EC2 service. EUCALYPTUS
-users can develop using their own local resources and then transition
-directly some or all of their functionality to EC2.

-resources in a structured way. A EUCALYPTUS allocation can function
