Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical's Ubuntu 9.10 Server Edition will include private cloud capabilities, thanks to support for the open source Eucalyptus project, InfoWorld reports. Available for free download on Oct. 29, Ubuntu 9.10 Server Edition will introduce Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, an open source cloud computing environment based on the same APIs as Amazon EC2. Users will be able to set up 10 to 15 private servers, leveraging the same capabilities they would use with Amazon, thereby allowing them to take their applications off the Amazon cloud and put them instead into a private cloud, or vice versa

Ummm . . . I think one of the points of this is that you can create your own PRIVATE cloud with your own servers.

From the summary: "thereby allowing them to take their applications off the Amazon cloud and put them instead into a private cloud"
