Apache CloudStack

Open source IaaS platform for managing virtual machines

About Apache CloudStack

Apache CloudStack is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform that helps businesses deploy virtual machines and manage geographically distributed data centers on a centralized server. IT professionals can customize the user interface and configure installed applications with features, such as firewalling, virtual machine (VM) templates, routing, storage replication, dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP), and more.

Administrators can use Apache CloudStack to manage access permissions, change account passwords, and allocate resources to specific domains or users. With its project management module, enterprises can send project invites to employees and organize users into multiple teams, enabling them to collaborate and share virtual resources such as snapshots, templates, data disks, and IP addresses. Managers can verify and authenticate end-users via external Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) servers such as Microsoft Active Directory and ApacheDS.

Apache CloudStack allows businesses to create new virtual machines and assign them to specific hosts or affinity groups based on individual requirements. Developers can create new network offerings with details, including name, description, data transfer rate, guest type, and virtual private cloud (VPC).
