CloudStack provides an integrated software solution for delivering virtual data centers as a service, delivering all of the essential components used to build, deploy, and manage multi-tier and multi-tenant cloud applications in a simple-to-install software package. The CloudStack platform includes a management server with a Web user interface and extensions to support a variety of hypervisor software (e.g. XenServer, Xen VMware, and KVM) installed on computing nodes running across multiple networks. The centralized management server scales linearly, eliminating the need for intermediate cluster-level management servers.
