The fundamental idea behind my thesis work is to use open source technologies and build a fully workable enterprise solution. Another part was to develop a management tool for the entire ecosystem , which can be deployed on web servers for the admins and users to use. In the very beginning I researched on different open source cloud platforms. Tried deploying them in small scale. I also looked into some professional cloud service providers, like Amazon AWS and Rackspace Cloud . I found Amazon is the pioneer among the cloud providers who are serving infrastructure as a service and Rackspace Cloud in the second position on the number of cloud users basis . So, there most complete open source solution with Amazon AWS cloud is Eucalyptus cloud ecosystem . I used Eucalyptus to deploy the cloud infrastructure. To make deploying cloud infrastructure easier on small scale I also wrote a script , which will setup a Eucalyptus cloud infrastructure with just few commands. Another part of my thesis was to develop a cloud management tool. I developed a new tool using a very popular open source python library Boto that is used to manage Amazon EC2 and S3 services. This report contains all the steps taken to deploy the cloud platform, challenges and the steps taken to resolve issues and also discuss about the cloud management tool.
