The Dell PowerEdge C2100 and C6100 servers have now been outfitted with Canonical’s Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC), an implementation of the Eucalyptus private cloud software.  This is run by the Ubuntu Server Edition operating system.  These two servers are specifically customized to run Ubuntu-based cloud services.

In the suggested setup, the C2100 server acts as a cloud compute node, while the C6100 can act either as a cloud compute server or as both a server and a node.  Dell specifically set up these servers to organizations developing applications to run on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Organizations could use the servers to test the applications locally before uploading them to Amazon’s paid service. The servers have a preconfigured testing and development environment. Eucalyptus duplicates the AWS APIs (application programming interfaces).
