Eucalyptus Enables Private Clouds on VMware

web-logo-eucalyptus-systemsEucalyptus said today that is offering the first commercial version of its open-source software used to create private clouds and that the software now supports VMware (s vmw), enabling enterprise customers that have embraced VMware for server consolidation to build private clouds on that infrastructure. Then, using Eucalyptus, they can bridge those private clouds to public ones, such as those provided by the likes of Amazon (s amzn). This offers enterprise customers an easier transition to the cloud and helps them leverage their investment in VMware beyond server consolidation.
