Eucalyptus 4.0.2 Cloud Computing Stack

Capacity is over 100 IPs instances supporting over 200 virtual machine instances over 4 nodes and up to 1 TB of Object based storage and 750 GB of EBS based storage. Capabilities include loadbalancing and elastic deployment. Systems are provisioned by Cobbler 2.4.1 instance running on Ubuntu 14.04 server edition.

Projects on the Eucalyptus Stack are currently running an elastic Hadoop Cluster with capacity up to 32 nodes.
