Eucalyptus Systems is a US startup active on the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing market.
The company develops an open source management system, Eucalyptus, for virtual infrastructures that supports KVM.
Eucalyptus is available as a stand alone solution for on-premises deployments, but it’s also part of the Linux distribution Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC), maintained by Canonical.
In March Dell signed an OEM agreement with Canonical to include UEC as part of its PowerEdge C servers.
In June Eucalyptus reached version 2.0 after a long development cycle, introducing commercial support for Windows guest operating systems.
Yesterday the company announced a second round of investment for $20M, led by New Enterprise Associates (NEA), Benchmark Capital and BV Capital. Benchmark and BV already led the previous $5.5M round.
