By Amine Barkat, Alysson Diniz Dos Santos and Thi Thao Nguyen Ho


Cloud computing is continuously growing as a prominent technology for enterprises. While several giant public cloud providers, such as Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, Google are competing to extend their market, there is still a large number of organizations asking higher level of privacy and control over cloud solutions. Therefore, the need to have private cloud solutions is obvious. To overcome this need there are several on-going open source software frameworks for building public and private clouds. Among them, OpenStack and CloudStack are growing at fast pace and gaining more attention. An analysis on these software stacks is necessary in order to choose the most suitable solution that matches an enterprise's requirements. This paper main contribution is an in depth study and comparison of the cloud properties of these two open source frameworks, providing useful information on open source cloud solutions that are not available elsewhere
