Terracotta, Eucalyptus team up for private clouds

Combined technology to provision private clouds on the Amazon AWS-compatible Eucalyptus private cloud platform

By CBR Staff Writer

Terracotta, a provider of Java applications, and Eucalyptus Systems, a provider of open source private cloud platform, have entered into a partnership to provide enterprises with an open source offering that maximises application performance in a private cloud environment.

Under the agreement, the two companies will provide integration between Terracotta technology and Eucalyptus software as well as engage in joint sales and marketing activities.

The combination allows large-scale enterprises to provision private clouds on the Amazon AWS-compatible Eucalyptus private cloud platform and capitalise on the elasticity, latency and flexibility of the cloud, the companies claim.

Terracotta provides customers access to a scalability continuum through data virtualisation. It also enables applications to scale from a single server using interfaces such as Ehcache to many nodes, even in virtualised environments such as private clouds. In addition, it provides users with optimum performance by addressing relational databases.

Eucalyptus is an open source software infrastructure for implementing on-premise cloud computing using an organisation’s own information technology infrastructure, without modification, special-purpose hardware or reconfiguration. The Eucalyptus design gives users the flexibility to seamlessly move applications from on-premise Eucalyptus clouds to public clouds, and vice versa, the companies said.

Amit Pandey, CEO of Terracotta, said: “By addressing the scalability of the data layer and the ability to easily provision elastic cloud resources within internal infrastructure, Eucalyptus and Terracotta are empowering enterprises to build the most cost-effective private clouds using commodity hardware and the virtualisation technology of their choice.”
