"Marten Mickos – the former MySQL chief executive who now heads build-you-own-cloud outfit Eucalyptus Systems – has defended the Eucalyptus platform against recent criticism of both its "open core" model and its ability to scale beyond a relatively small number of servers.

"His comments come as Eucalyptus releases a new incarnation of its open source platform, which exists alongside the company's for-pay enterprise platform. Version 2.0 of the open source Eucalyptus is designed to, yes, improve the platform's ability to scale.

""We have improved scalability on the front-end and the back-end," Mickos says. "We aim to improve transactional scalability as well as resource scalability." The new version also supports virtio, a virtual I/O Linux framework, and iSCSI targets for Elastic Block Storeage (EBS) volumes, a much requested feature."
