Open Source Cloud Computing: RightScale Joins Forces with Eucalyptus

,----[ Quote ]
| Eucalyptus, which stands for "Elastic Utility Computing Architecture for
| Linking Your Programs to Useful Systems," is an open source software
| infrastructure for implementing cloud computing on clusters. The current
| interface to Eucalyptus is compatible with Amazon's EC2 interface, but the
| infrastructure is designed to support multiple client-side interfaces.
| Eucalyptus can be downloaded for free and installed on any set of servers to
| create a private, EC2-compatible cloud computing system on those servers.
