For IoT Hosting, Eucalyptus Private Cloud is a Natural Fit



Amazon AWS is the most-utilized cloud infrastructure provider for IoT hosting, per the Eclipse 2016 IoT Developer Survey.

This means developers are leaning heavily on public cloud to gather and send massive amounts of real-time data, such as location, purchases and even personal health information. Knowing the sensitivity of such data, this also signals the need for private cloud resources, as developers seek to mitigate heightened privacy and security risks inherent with connected devices.

Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than half of all global enterprise IT security programs will be redefined and expanded by evolving IOT security requirements - creating more and greater responsibilities for IT staff.

We don’t have to wait four more years. According to Business Insider, 82 percent of firms are planning to place IoT applications by 2017.

Now is the time to implement an appropriate and forward-looking private cloud strategy.

AWS-compatible Private Cloud Software

Developers who employ AWS public cloud can leverage the technology behind HPE Helion’s AWS-compatible private cloud software, known as Eucalyptus.

Eucalyptus, an open source cloud platform, is designed to give users a private cloud service that works like AWS. There is no need to change code, tools or processes, so IoT developers can work in a familiar environment. Eucalyptus supports popular AWS APIs like EC2, EBS, S3, VPC, IAM, ELB, Auto Scaling, CloudWatch and CloudFormation.

The AWS-compatible private cloud helps developers address the security and compliance concerns of IoT, while enabling them to easily migrate workloads between public and private clouds. As more organizations put applications in place over the next year, their end users can depend on a more robust, more protected experience.

To get started, organizations can install the private cloud software in less than 10 minutes with the Eucalyptus FastStart download.
