Amazon Partners with Eucalyptus for Private, Hybrid Clouds

Until now, Amazon has been all about public cloud computing, but a new agreement with Eucalyptus gives it a toehold in private cloud computing as well. Under the terms of the deal, enterprises that use Eucalyptus will be able to connect to Amazon Web Services (AWS) via the AWS API. That makes it a little easier for companies to set up hybrid cloud environments.

Software architect Simon Munro notes, “What is really interesting about the Eucalyptus announcement is that it lends credibility to AWS as the definition of cloud computing (not just the market leader or early adopter).” In the future, enterprise developers may choose to use AWS APIs to manage their private internal clouds.
