By: Jelle Frank van der Zwet

Eucalyptus Cloud Solutions Engineer Tom Ellis explains the company’s API compatibility with Amazon EC2, S3 and IAM and the benefits this interoperability brings for customers using hybrid cloud solutions. Tom also covers Amazon Direct Connect in the new web user console  for interacting with the Eucalyptus cloud.


Eucalyptus and Interxion partner together with Arista Networks and Atrato IP in the Eucalyptus Test Lab,  located at Interxion’s Frankfurt Cloud Hub. Test lab Users will be able to create Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) to build, develop and trial private cloud services at high speed and with best-in-class performance guarantees. Because Eucalyptus is compatible with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) API, Test Lab customers will also be able to build and test a hybrid cloud deployment, allowing you to move workloads between Interxion data centres and the AWS cloud.
