CloudStack

Apache CloudStack is an open source cloud management platform for delivering Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) in cloud computing environments.

CloudStack is being developed to help managed service providers and enterprise IT departments create and operate public cloud, private cloud or hybrid clouds with capabilities equivalent to Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).  

CloudStack, which was initially developed by Cloud.com, was acquired by Citrix in 2011 and turned over to the Apache Software Foundation in 2012.  Development is now governed by the Apache Foundation with the code available under the Apache 2.0 license.

CloudStack competes with OpenStack and Eucalyptus in the cloud orchestration market.
