Eucalyptus is a cloud computing software platform for on-premise (private) Infrastructure as a Service clouds. It uses existing infrastructure to create scalable and secure AWS-compatible cloud resources for compute, network and storage.

Benefit to Fedora
Fedora can be used to build a highly available and scalable AWS-compatible compute/storage cloud.
The main challenge is in packaging a large number of Java dependencies. There is a list of direct dependencies at Eucalyptus, but it does does contain all transitive build dependencies yet. There will also be some distro integration work, but much of this is happening as part of the upstream packaging and release process.
How To Test
Users will have the ability to build an IaaS system.
- Google Web Toolkit
- WSDL2C (from Axis2/Java, but may be separated into a fragment package, as Axis2/Java has a huge dependency list)
We would punt to F18.
