The makers of Eucalyptus, the Linux-based open source cloud computing platform that now ships with Ubuntu, are targeting enterprise cloud computing with the launch of Eucalyptus Systems Inc.
With $5.5 million in financing led by Benchmark Capital, the private company will develop enterprise-grade products and services built on the freeware platform, starting with consulting and support.
The Eucalyptus infrastructure, which began as a University of California Santa Barbara project in 2007, allows enterprises to deploy large-scale on-premise private clouds as well as hybrid clouds that use both private and public resources.
