CS 401: Project Decision

This week in our class we finally decided which project we will be working on all semester. This project will be the focal point of the course and I am very excited to get to work and learn more about it. We chose the Eucalyptus project, which is basically an open source cloud computing project. I have never experienced much with cloud computing but the setup alone interests me and I can’t wait to be able to add something like this to my resume.

A few things that we learned about Eucalyptus during the last class involved familiarizing ourselves with cloud computing products. We were given documentation to read up and learn more about Eucalyptus itself. They also recommended that we setup free accounts with Amazon EC2, which is Amazon’s cloud computing product, in order to get better experience with similar products. I also signed up for the Eucalyptus listserv in order to stay in the loop with what is going on regarding the project itself.

I look forward to working on this project and I would very much like to assist in the setup as well. I have networked multiple computers together, but I do not have a lot of experience with configuring the network using the command line and working with new operating systems, for example CentOS.
