View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cloud on ubuntu Desktop

January 22nd, 2011, 07:13 AM
Hello there,
I am wondering that is it possible to install cloud on ubuntu desktop?
If I have ubuntu desktop edition in my laptop and then using these commands if I install cloud then will it work properly or not?

sudo apt-get install eucalyptus-cloud

Installing cloud on a single machine will it make any kind of problem or what? Additionally I am avoiding to install UEC, and usign ubuntu desktop I want to work with cloud.

This is how to install from bare packages https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEC/PackageInstall

However installing UEC from CD is definitely easier, and results in a more supported configuration. Also, you'd still need at least 2 machines (CLC/CC/SC/Walrus, and NC). There are hacks to install on a single machine, but that would be an unsupported configuration

For the easiest way to play with UEC, try my blog post on running UEC on EC2

Have fun :)
