Build your own private Cloud!

Cloud Computing is all the rage these days. Ever wanted to try building your own cloud and check it out. Ubuntu Distribution 9.10 now includes Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud that you can download and build your own cloud that is compatible with Amazon EC2 platform and images. It uses an open source implementation for cloud infrastructure that is available from http://open.eucalyptus.com/.

Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud distribution is available from http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download-server

To deploy a minimum cloud infrastructure you will need two systems. I am in the process of trying this out using two vmware images. Stay tuned for more information as I report my results.
