Welcome to ECToo

ECToo has been renamed. Visit Cloud42, the management framework for EC2 instead.


What is ECToo?

ECToo is an Open Source management framework for Amazon EC2, allowing you to easily manage your EC2 server instances and to exploit the whole power of Cloud Computing.

ECToo provides a web-based, rich graphical user interface (GUI) that can be used to monitor and administrate EC2 AMIs and instances.

Beyond the basic functions like starting and stopping instances or managing keypairs, the tool features some enhanced functionalities like transferring files from and to your computing cloud or from an AWS S3 bucket. Furthermore, it is possible to remotely execute arbitrary commands on a running EC2 server instance only by using the GUI. Due to this remote control, ECToo becomes an all-in-one solution, empowering full flexibility.

Apart from the GUI, ECToo offers a well-designed Web service interface, thus allowing to invoke all its functionalities from within other applications or even to orchestrate EC2 instances using BPEL processes. Because of this, ECToo is especially interesting for developers, too.

For instance, there is a notification mechanism that can be used to subscribe any kind of endpoint to event messages sent from EC2 instances according to the publish/subscribe pattern.

Cool! Where can I get ECToo?
