Yesterday we had a session on Eucalyptus in my house. Total 7 people attended
the session including me. We started with an all-in-one cloud installation on
the Inter NUC(s). After the cloud is up and running, I installed Fedora 20 cloud
image on it.
During the installation we had some nice discussions around different technology
choices and features of Eucalyptus. Few people also noted the key differences
and similarities between OpenStack and Eucalyptus.
Today evening we had a session on “Open Cloud” using Eucalyptus Community Cloud
on #dgplug channel on freenode. 15 people attended the session. We went through
the different parts of the user console. People created security groups and key
pairs. Everyone started their own instances (with little hiccups) and sshed into
them. The UI is simple enough for the students to get the idea.
In future I will be doing more sessions on IRC, starting from installing your
own private cloud to learning different technology using cloud. I will
also put the notes on my blog. If you think I should cover any particular piece
of technology please leave a comment in this post.
