Terracotta and Eucalyptus announce partnership
Terracotta and Eucalyptus Systems, both open source startups, have announced a new joint partnership. According to the companies, which specialise in scalability for Java applications and the private cloud platform, the partnership will "provide enterprises with an open source solution that maximizes data scalability and application performance in a private cloud environment". With the new agreement, the companies will reportedly combine their sales and marketing efforts and improve integration between their products. Woody Rollins, CEO and co-founder of Eucalyptus Systems said that, "Together we are making private clouds a viable option for managing critical applications and processes at even the highest workloads".
Eucalyptus, which is an acronym for "Elastic Utility Computing Architecture Linking Your Programs To Useful Systems", allows for the implementation of cloud computing within a datacenter by providing an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution that is compatible with Amazon Web Services (AWS), including Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Simple Storage Service (S3) and Elastic Block Store (EBS). Terracotta is an eponymous open source development project that focuses on enterprise Java application scalability and availability.
The two companies will be hosting a joint webcast on the 25th of February at 11m PST (7pm GMT) that will demonstrate their combined solutions. Those interested in attending the webinar are asked to register prior to the event.
