We are working on building Hybrid Cloud for research and development purpose. Our project goal is to realize managing not only Public Cloud but also Private Cloud by making operations even easier. We are managing Amazon EC2, and our Private Cloud by making our own Cloud management tool by Drupal, which we call 'Clanavi' beyond Drupal as a Content Management System. --- Drupal as a fundamental of PaaS (Platform as a Service).
