Symbolic is an enterprise platform designed to build, configure, and manage your huge and globally distributed data centers. It features cloud computing, Web manager virtual environments (Xen, KVM, and libvirt), clustering support, custom operations and scripts support, and user and role definitions.
KaOS is a lightweight, multi-purpose embedded Linux platform designed for virtualization and cloud computing applications. KaOS is based on Linux KVM and is a true enterprise grade hypervisor platform. KaOS makes it easy to deploy KVM based virtualization solutions. KaOS is a lightweight platform, less than 10MB in size. The SDK provides everything necessary to rebuild the platform and comes with scripts to assist with building a KaOS-enabled Linux kernel. KaOS has a menu-driven CLI called AppQueue and a management process that replaces init and other functions called kattach.
CloudStack is a complete package for managing cloud computing and virtual infrastructure. It enables users to easily build, manage, and deploy private and public clouds. 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. CloudStack automatically configures a guest virtual machine’s networking, storage, and authentication settings. The software can also integrate with physical components such as switches, routers, load balancers, and firewalls.
