The Monash Eucalyptus Forrest

Supervisor: Prof. David Abramson

 

“Eucalyptus is an open-source system for implementing on-premise private and hybrid clouds using the hardware and software infrastructure that is in place, without modification. Eucalyptus adds capabilities such as end-user customization, self-service provisioning, and legacy application support to data center virtualization features, making IT customer service easier, more fully featured, and less expensive." [http://www.eucalyptus.com/] This project concerns building a Eucalyptus cloud at Monash and testing it with the Nimrod Cloud adapter.
