Eucalyptus Session at Cloud Expo Cloud Computing Expo - I know, I should not writing a blog post on a Friday. Forgive me people. I have blogged for about ten days now and it out guilt I do this. There was one pretty good learning, after I had installed installed Hybridfox. This is the one about allocation and association of ip addresses. And it kind of took by surprise.
