Apache CloudStack offers a solid documentation and a large community for users and developers that make troubleshooting less difficult. Is a very reliable tool for orchestration with good and simple usability.

You can deploy new virtual machines with a few clicks.

Due to big and engaged community, updates are available frequently in order to solve bugs and improve features.

Is an open-source software that is very important to build a low cost solution.

The orchestration architecture is simple. With only one server it is possible to have a cloud orchestrator, provisioning network, compute and disk. Updates are often published. User authentication can be based in SAML 2.0. This product is open source and is possible to create features as your needs. Good features can be submitted to the community to be released in next versions. Almost all functions to maintenance are available in API.

CloudStack is a simple monolithic agnostic orchestration tool that you need a couple hours to study, design and implement to have huge result, an entire IaaS experience. Because it's simple the troubleshooting is very easy and the providers can delivery a great SLA to their clients

  • New functionalities
  • Fixing bugs
  • Private and public clouds
  • Sometimes you can find undocumented bugs
  • It fails in the area where instead of making stuff that works bug free it introduces new ones with every minor or major release
  • More Rigid

Whether our clients are VPS hosting providers or operate private cloud infrastructure for their internal enterprise requirements, CloudStack provides solutions in an easy to implement and operate way that is simple to provide training for.

The learning curve for our customesr adopting CloudStack for the management of their cloud infrastructure is shallow, enabling our clients to come up to speed quickly without having to outsource their administrative functions any longer than necessary

CloudStack Review: "Excellent Cost Benefit Solution"

We have to provide a private cloud infrastructure in our university in order to supply the demand for virtual resources for our researchers. Instead of each one of them deploying to a small datacenter in their labs, we can centralize all hardware in datacenters with redundancy, reliability and all services of an SLA. As the orchestrator layer, Apache CloudStack facilitates the management of compute, storage and network resources.

Apache Cloudstack provides a complete solution for different end users' skills. It works fine with the most known hypervisors and also has a great cost benefit for small and medium companies. You are able to manage a complete cloud environment with a minimal support team. Unfortunately, Apache Cloudstack is not the first choice as a cloud orchestrator, so it can be difficult to find solutions for other companies to integrate their products to a cloudstack solution.
