CloudStack Review

Helped me create infrastructure environment for an academic instituion

What is our primary use case?

I used Apache CloudStack as an academic project, for setting up the environments for a school's infrastructure, and not for specific applications' usage.

How has it helped my organization?

My experience with CloudStack was part of my academic experience in my college. It eventually did not end up being used practically, it was showcased as a research project.

What needs improvement?

I think CloudStack needs to promote itself better, since I believe it a better solution than OpenStack. However, the latter has been more successfully commercially.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have also explored setting up with OpenStack and I found it harder to use than CloudStack.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Apache CloudStack at seven out of 10, compared with six out of 10 for OpenStack.
