    5 NEuca (pronounced "nuke'ah") is a set of patches for Eucalyptus and guest configuration scripts that enhance the functionality of a private Eucalyptus cloud without interfering with its traditional operations. This is consistent with the model of allowing Eucalyptus to control the 'management' interface of the VM, while the other interfaces are used for high-speed 'data-plane' interconnects although it may have other uses. NEuca allows VMs instantiated via Eucalyptus to 
    6   * Have additional network interfaces, not controlled by Eucalyptus. These interfaces can be connected on the host node to VLANs or physical interfaces. Eucalyptus continues to control and assign the address of eth0 of the VM. NEuca performs necessary operations on the node hosting the VM to make sure VLAN interfaces and extra bridges are created and torn down. 
    7   * Perform arbitrary post-boot actions using shell scripts

    99The changes to Eucalyptus code base are limited to its Node Controller and do not impact on the other components or the user tools. The installation (described in a separate document) follows the traditional steps for installing Eucalyptus on a cluster with minor modifications for applying the NEuca patches. NEuca user tools can be [wiki:NEuca-guest-configuration installed on existing Eucalyptus-friendly images].
