View Full Version : [ubuntu] Setting up a Private cloud via. UEC

March 2nd, 2011, 09:36 PM
I am new to Cloud Computing World and very passionate to learn it. To start with, I did some research on net and gathered some theoretical background about it. More specifically, I am currently concentrating on setting up a private cloud using UEC referring: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEC/PackageInstall (Link 1) and further I am planning to upgrade this private cloud to a Hybrid Cloud. I guess by the time I complete this set up process, I would get good starting base and confidence in Cloud world.

As UEC is powered by Eucalyptus, I found private cloud installation process also at Eucalyptus portal:
http://open.eucalyptus.com/wiki/installing-eucalyptus-source-16 (Link 2)

I wanted to know that considering my plans to set up a hybrid cloud after setting up a private cloud first... whether installing private cloud using UEC via. Link 1 would be better or I should follow steps in Link 2.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

just use Link-1. UEC is easier to install than eucalyptus from source.

Thanks raymdt.

I have one more query. I am setting up a private UEC and then I wish to make an interface to a public cloud Amazon EC2. So basically, I wish to use this public cloud on demand basis. If I need more resource that I have in my private cloud, I will get some from public cloud and vice versa..... Can you suggest any existing model, refernces where such kind of interfacing is explained or used?
