We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
You can use a single API to get things done, rather than multiple APIs on multiple modules.CloudStack’s private gateway networking feature is what enables us to offer utmost security and confidentially to our customers and partners, by enabling them to connect to their virtual data centers via dedicated, encrypted, private fiber lines that never touch the public internet space. Ease of setup and management are certainly important additional benefits for us on the engineering team.The structuring of the components and isolated environments helped us when using parts of the framework at different levels of product development.CloudStack helped us showcase our features through process visualization and functional solutions.CloudStack supports every operating system that supports hypervisors, which makes the product more attractive, compared to vCloud Director or Azure.It is very easy to install and manage. It has the all modules in one node, unlike other software (OpenStack). The product allows a customized look and feel, and the ability to add custom workflows.It works, and pretty much always has. Reliability and support for enterprise features, with a multi-tenant interface, makes CloudStack a very compelling solution.Key features include stability, centralized management design that scales well, and transparent interoperability with different hypervisors and manufacturers..

The solution's technical support is good.

Cons
I would like to see support for native VLAN, and fault-tolerance.There are some minor things that can be improved even more such as, perhaps, a bit more polishing on the GUI side to catch up with the API possibilities (which are really extensive) but otherwise nothing critical.A technology upgrade is one item which could be improved upon a lot.Lack of support for third-party software vendors such as Veeam and Zerto creates limitations on comprehensive offerings which would include backup and disaster recovery.Accounts, domains, and user accounts are set up with public cloud in mind, not private.The numerous, multi-layered drill-down menus make it difficult to find one simple knob to turn.VPN P2S is cutting all connections except the CloudStack environment for the user when he is connected. I would like to have VPN like Cisco's AnyConnect.It would be great to have a couple of “external” networks for VPC and have the possibility, for each domain, to choose they type of “external” network.

This solution has a yearly licensing. In my country, it's really expensive.

Pricing and Cost Advice
There is no license, so the product is free unless you are buying professional technical support services.As far as I know, CS is still free of charge. If you want to pay some money, Citrix Cloud Platform is based on CS, I think. 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. If possible, contract a specialized consultant company for the initial setup and knowledge transfer.​​
