Apache CloudStack

apache_cloudstackWhat is Apache CloudStack?

Apache CloudStack is a top-level project of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). The project develops open source software for deploying public and private Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds.

CloudStack provides an open and flexible cloud orchestration platform to deliver reliable and scalable private and public clouds. What’s that mean, exactly?

 
Features and Functionality

Apache CloudStack is a Java-based project that provides a management server and agents (if needed) for hypervisor hosts so that you can run an IaaS cloud. Some, but not all, of the features and functionality provided by CloudStack:
Works with hosts running XenServer/XCP, KVM, Hyper-V, and/or VMware ESXi with vSphere
Provides a friendly Web-based UI for managing the cloud
Provides a native API
May provide an Amazon S3/EC2 compatible API (optional)
Manages storage for instances running on the hypervisors (primary storage) as well as templates, snapshots, and ISO images (secondary storage)
Orchestrates network services from the data link layer (L2) to some application layer (L7) services, such as DHCP, NAT, firewall, VPN, and so on
Accounting of network, compute, and storage resources
Multi-tenancy/account separation
User management

In short, organizations can use Apache CloudStack to deploy a full-featured public or private IaaS cloud.
