Meeting Time

  • Mondays at 6pm

Scope

We want to investigate possible interfaces to a cloud hosting platform such as Amazon EC2 or Rackspace. For example, if Systems does not have the capacity to host VMs and there is a request from a class for 30 VMs, should be done easily and painlessly on an outside platform.

Roadmap

Fall 2011

Goal

Late October

Choose a cloud host and find possible provisioning interfaces

Mid November

Choose a semi-public provisioning interface and set it up

December

Have a demo-able interface and be able to present

Project Goal

Fall 2011

We would like a working interface between us and a cloud hosting provider in order to facilitate the needs of Systems and faculty. In the event that the College's current resources are not enough to meet the demand, we would have to move some services to a cloud host. For example, if we need to double the amount of VMs a class needs and we don't have enough VMWare servers, we would like to redirect services to a service such as Amazon EC2.

Written Component

We will have some type of written analysis/guide of our recommendation. This will include why we chose this cloud solution and how we set it up.

Possible cloud interfaces

Possible cloud hosts

  • Amazon EC2
  • Rackspace They do not support private VLANs so we will use EC2

Meeting Minutes

October 24th, 2011

We worked on starting a virtual private cloud on EC2. Documentation used: http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AmazonVPC/latest/GettingStartedGuide/

This is where all inbound traffic goes:
GatewayServer: 10.0.0.0/16

The only way into the InnerCloud (10.0.1.0/16) is to ssh into GatewayServer and then ssh into a VM in the inner cloud.
