Step 6: You will be asked disk install options in this step. Eucalyptus is intended to be the primary application on the system; by default, it will take up all disk space on the system.Linux admin can set up the separate partition for Eucalyptus here.After these steps, Eucalyptus installation will begin.

Failure point 1.

As we started to try and implement the cloud,

Roadblock 1: we were advised to start the implementation by downloading Ububtu 14.04 LTS.

Roadblock 2: we tried the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, but be aware: it needs an active CD-ROM!

We even tried using an external USB CD ROM, but to no avail.

Next on line:

1. Installation on personal Dell.

2 . Booting from a CentOS ISO.

Starting it out.

Why have we come up with the blog post?

Well, it’s pretty straight. We are pursuing a Cloud Computing course at the uni, under Dr Madhuri Bhavsar Ma’am(she’s the best teacher you can find in miles! 🙂 ). And, over the next 5 months, we are going to implement all that we can to get as deep into the cloud framework we can!

Hold to your seats, and you’re going to learn a lot from our experiences.

Next Target: Private cloud using Eucalyptus on an Ubuntu Server.
