Apache CloudStack (Incubating) Version 4.0.0
About Apache CloudStack (Incubating)
Apache CloudStack (Incubating) is software designed to deploy and manage large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform. CloudStack is used by a number of service providers to offer public cloud services, and by many companies to provide an on-premises (private) cloud offering.
Apache CloudStack currently supports the most popular hypervisors: VMware, Oracle VM, KVM, XenServer and Xen Cloud Platform. CloudStack also offers bare metal management of servers, using PXE to provision OS images and IPMI to manage the server. Apache CloudStack offers three methods for managing cloud computing environments: an easy to use Web interface, command line tools, and a full-featured RESTful API.
