Installing Eucalyptus 3.1 using FastStart 3.1.2 in under 30 minutes!
Today, October 26, 2012 Eucalyptus launched a new / updated version of the FastStart installer. FastStart is a self-contained installer for Eucalyptus. You download a single ISO, burn to a CD or DVD and have everything needed to install Eucalyptus in various configurations.
The standard installation would include 2 machines, one “Front-End” machine and 1 or more node controllers. This is a great way to do a simple POC or proof of concept.
Also supported is a “Cloud-in-a-Box” or a configuration that is completely installed on a single machine. Cloud-in-a-Box can even be installed in a single virtual machine. Blog post coming shortly.
