Setting Up of an Open Source Based Private Cloud
Cloud Computing is an attractive concept in IT field, since it allows the resources to be provisioned according to the user needs. It provides services on virtual machines whereby the user can share resources, software and other devices on demand. Cloud services are supported both by proprietary and Open Source Systems. As proprietary products are very expensive, customers are not allowed to experiment on their product and security is a major issue in it, Open Source Systems helps in solving out these problems. Cloud Computing motivated many academic and non academic members to develop Open Source Cloud Setup, here the users are allowed to study the source code and experiment it. This paper describes the configuration of a private cloud using Eucalyptus.
