CohesiveFT Adds Internal Eucalyptus Cloud Deployment

Custom Elastic Servers Configured, Assembled, and Deployed to Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud

CohesiveFT (http://www.cohesiveft.com), the leader in onboarding solutions for virtual and cloud computing infrastructures, today announced a technology preview of Elastic Server deployment to Eucalyptus private clouds. Elastic Server Personal Edition users can now dynamically deploy custom servers to a private Eucalyptus cloud infrastructure hosted on their own network. This technology preview comes on the heels of the release of Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition which includes a technology preview for the new Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud powered by the open-source Eucalyptus system.

"The inclusion of the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud in the Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition release opens up many opportunities for private cloud computing in the enterprise," said Simon Wardley, Software Services Manager Canonical. "CohesiveFT is well positioned to help organizations leverage this new and exciting technology."

With the combined solution from Canonical and CohesiveFT, organizations can build, populate, and evaluate internal Eucalyptus clouds without the latency or security issues associated with public cloud computing. Additionally, Eucalyptus shares API compatibility with Amazon Web Services' EC2, giving organizations interested in migrating to the cloud a suitable, local test environment. Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition has made Eucalyptus extremely easy to configure and deploy through its integration into Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud. Elastic Server can be used to automatically deploy custom servers to Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud infrastructure quickly and easily.

Users merely provide their private cloud URL and credentials in the secure Elastic Server platform, rapidly assemble servers in the factory, and have their servers delivered automatically upon completion to their private cloud. The initial technology preview allows all of Elastic Server's supported guest operating systems to be deployed to Eucalyptus clouds. Support for Ubuntu 9.04 as a guest OS will follow shortly.

"Now organizations wanting to explore private cloud infrastructure only have to fire up Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition and the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud," said Patrick Kerpan, CTO of CohesiveFT. "They don't have to become expert at KVM virtualization or creating Eucalyptus compliant images. Once finished they can start deploying and launching Elastic Servers to their newly created private cloud in minutes."

"We are excited to be working with industry-leading partners like CohesiveFT to build an ecosystem around the launch of Eucalyptus on Jaunty Jackelope," said Rich Wolski, CTO of Eucalyptus Systems Inc. "By supporting popular cloud APIs, the combination of industry-leading partners, Eucalyptus as an open-source cloud infrastructure, and Ubuntu provides a powerful new platform for developing and deploying cloud applications."

The Elastic Server platform is a complement to virtualization and cloud offerings. Users assemble custom servers by choosing from a library of popular components. Once assembled, these custom application stacks can be configured to a variety of virtualization and cloud-ready formats, downloaded and deployed in real-time. There are over three thousand users of the service who have assembled more than seven thousand Elastic Server images for public and private use. The addition of the Eucalyptus internal cloud deployment format highlights CohesiveFT's platform momentum following recently introduced support for ElasticHosts, KVM, Virtual Iron, and Ubuntu and Fedora operating systems
