As for hypervisors – everything as usual, you need to pay for VMware and vCenter. As for XenServer, recently they changed the free feature list, so you may need to pay some money to get useful features like XenMotion.The Apache CloudStack is open source, so you do not have licenses to purchase.​Give an effort to planning.
