The Emerging Private Cloud Delivery Model for AWS Users


A few years have passed since enterprise organizations began adopting Amazon Web Services (AWS) for their public cloud infrastructure. Now these same companies are seeking interoperability from private cloud services.


Enterprise clients seek data privacy from cloud services

With the proliferation of security breaches and data compromise, businesses in the enterprise are scrambling to safeguard critical information. For most companies, this signals a need for private cloud integration – a model that historically offers greater protection for sensitive apps and data.

For organizations currently subscribing to AWS public cloud services, Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers an AWS- compatible private cloud solution called Eucalyptus.

HPE Helion Eucalyptus is an open source hybrid cloud platform that allows organizations to install and run their own in-house, AWS private cloud, and then seamlessly migrate workloads between AWS and Eucalyptus for a hybrid cloud experience.

Benefits of AWS-compatible Eucalyptus Software

First, Eucalyptus brings the security benefits of private cloud to AWS users. So it delivers the protection more and more clients are demanding from their cloud services.

Second, by collaborating with AWS, Eucalyptus gives users the ability to keep working with the same tools, processes and application code they are familiar with – so there is less complexity for IT staff even though the private cloud infrastructure is being added.

Finally, because Eucalyptus is private cloud software that works with AWS, it actually delivers a hybrid cloud solution.

Eucalyptus is the emerging private cloud delivery model for AWS users, because it strengthens IT security without disrupting business scale and agility – truly, the balance organizations need heading into the future.  

Get Eucalyptus FastStart to install and run your own in-house AWS private cloud.
