2. 2Agenda Overview of CloudStack (15 minutes) Demo of CloudStack (20 minutes) Q&A with Support (25 minutes) 3. 3CloudStack Background Open source Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform, now underASL 2.0 license A proven cloud platform Developed since 2008 by acquired by Citrix in 2011 Code base donated to the Apache Software Foundation in April 2012, where it is now an Incubator project Version 3.0.2 available for download at Powering some of the worlds largest clouds today 4. 4Whos Building their Cloud with CloudStack? MSPs and Telcos Web 2.0 Companies Enlightened Enterprises 5. 5CloudStack Deployment Models Private Cloud Hybrid Cloud Public Cloud 6. 6What is CloudStack? CloudStack is a scalable, multi-tenant, open source, purpose-built, cloud orchestration platform for delivering turnkey Infrastructure-as-a-Service clouds 7. 7Feature Highlights Broad Hypervisor support XenServer, KVM, VMware, OracleVM Scalable architecture Support thousands of hosts and virtual machine guests High availability Configurations that provide automatic failover for virtual machines Rich networking capability Ability to define service level definitions with specificresource footprints Choice of interfaces Web UI, command line, REST-based API 8. CloudStack Infrastructure Overview Host is the basic unit of scale. Hostsrun a hypervisor or are bare metal. One or more hosts of samehypervisor type are grouped into acluster. All hosts in cluster haveaccess to shared (primary) storage. One or more clusters are groupedinto a pod, usually with an L2 switch(think rack). One or more pods are grouped intoan avaliability zone. A zone hasaccess to secondary storage. One or more zones is controlled by amanagement server. 9.

AnnouncingApache CloudStack 12. 12CloudStack and Apache CloudStack 3.0.1 and all future versions are licensed under Apache License2.0 instead of GPLv3 CloudStack has been accepted into the Apache Software FoundationIncubator Turns CloudStack into a truly community run project with governanceprovided by the Apache foundation Why Apache? Industry standard in OSS Foundations, not controlled by Citrix 10+ years, 100+ projects, 800 developers Well-known projects: Apache Web Server, Apache Tomcat, Hadoop, Cassandra, etc. Citrix will deliver a full commercial of implementation of CloudStack,called CloudPlatform 13. 13ResourcesIRC: #CloudStack on irc.freenode.netForums: lists: [email protected]: @cloudstack 14.
