Eucalyptus has a storage interface called walrus. It is exactly similar and compatible with Amazon S3 and it is open source. You can try Eucalyptus.

Openstack is another option for this type of build out.

Thanks :) both Walrus and OpenStack seem to solve the problem. But personally Walrus on Eucalyptus seems to be a better pick cause of the S3 integration. – Prashanth Raghu Aug 29 '11 at 13:37
