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.​​
