AWS and Eucalyptus to make it easier for customers to migrate applications between on-premises environments and the cloud
SEATTLE, March 22 — Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS), an Amazon.com company and the leader in cloud computing (NASDAQ: AMZN), and Eucalyptus Systems, a provider of on-premises Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) software, today announced an agreement that enables customers to more efficiently migrate workloads between their existing data centers and AWS while using the same management tools and skills across both environments. As part of this agreement, AWS will support Eucalyptus as they continue to extend compatibility with AWS APIs and customer use cases. Customers can run applications in their existing datacenters that are compatible with popular Amazon Web Services such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
"We're pleased to provide customers with the added flexibility to more freely move workloads between their existing IT environments and the AWS cloud," said Terry Wise, director of Amazon Web Services Partner Ecosystem. "Enterprises can now take advantage of a common set of APIs that work with both AWS and Eucalyptus, enabling the use of scripts and other management tools across both platforms without the need to rewrite or maintain environment-specific versions. Additionally, customers can leverage their existing skills and knowledge of the AWS platform by using the same, familiar AWS SDKs and command line tools in their existing data centers."
"We're excited to be working more closely with AWS," said Marten Mickos, CEO of Eucalyptus. "The ability to develop against a common set of market-leading APIs, for both on-premise and cloud deployments, is a big benefit for our customers and software partners. This agreement is going to accelerate our roadmap, and help us maintain our compatibility with AWS as both companies continue to innovate."
"The cloud is becoming an increasingly important foundation for our data center operations, which support more than 600,000 hotel rooms under seven brands," said Scott Johnson, vice president of Enterprise Engineering at InterContinental Hotel Group. "As a user of both Amazon Web Services and Eucalyptus, this agreement will provide us with even greater flexibility and scalability for our cloud deployments. We believe the ability to leverage a common set of APIs will significantly transform our operations and provide a business advantage in the competitive hospitality industry."
