Eucalyptus Joins In Cloud Computing Alliance
Santa Barbara-based cloud computing software provider Eucalyptus Systems is one of three firms which says they have created a new group focused on bringing self-service, private and hybrid clouds to the enterprise. According to newScale, rPath, and Eucalyptus, the three have created a new coalition called the "NRE" alliance, which will promote the firms' integrated technology platform for the cloud computing market. The three vendors said that they will offer up a video, an online webinar, white papers, a readiness assessment workshop, and other resources around their effort. The three vendors first announced the three way collaboration back in August. Eucalyptus is venture backed by New Enterprise Associates, Benchmark Capital and BV Capital, and is now run by former MySQL head Marten Mickos.
