Eucalyptus is the engine powering the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud and is compatible with the Amazon AWS public cloud infrastructure

Eucalyptus Systems, creators of the eponymous open source private cloud platform, has gathered a little ecosystem of third-party software solutions such as AppScale, Canonical, CohesiveFT, RightScale, rPath and Ylastic that make Eucalyptus more usable and accessible.

It’s also put new functionality in the latest Eucalyptus 1.5.2 release that’s supposed to make it easier to create and use on-premise private and hybrid clouds.

The widgetry now includes pre-packaged Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), the ability to register a Eucalyptus cloud from the RightScale and CohesiveFT management platforms and enhanced client tool support.

Eucalyptus is the engine powering the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud and is compatible with the Amazon AWS public cloud infrastructure.
