Today I want to play with Eucalyptus, the free Amazon API implementation that is developed at UCSB and there even is integration with RightScale going on right now as well as an annoucement at NY Cloud Computing Expo by RightScale. I am told Eucalyptus is based on Karmic Koala, or Ubuntu 9.10, this seems strange, since it was only announced Feb 20 by Mark ShuttleWorth. Ubuntu 9.04 includes Eucalyptus, sweet. Perhaps autoinst can be used to automate host config, but I am still leaning towards RightScale. There is some cool info coming from its CTO soon, not at liberty to disclose, but been asking for it. Karmic Koala is the 9.10 Ubuntu release in the works.
