Playing around with cloud stuff

  • Create a single host eucalyptus cloud
  • configure everything with ansible
  • test lib cloud with euca and open stack
  • Compare with open stack
  • open shift

Eucalyptus; what why where


  • to hack on Eucalyptus
  • since it's closest public thing to Amazon available - good for interesting tests
  • 'cos generally has been more together and better for testing than openstack (though may be changing)

What's needed

  • server with at least:
    • 4GB; preferably 16GB memory
    • min 20G disk / preferably 100G
  • good to have a second server as network control server and so on
  • a “vlan clean” network - e.g.
    • a dedicated switch
    • 1024 VLAN range
  • private address space - transparent to the network but better if it isn't used elsewhere
  • public address space - e.g. 32 addresses - can be faked
