"OpenStack - A open-source software platform for cloud computing."

Comments: I am working with the OpenStack IaaS from past many years and it surely increases the software delivery speed. The unified management helps in tracking the CloudForm cost. We can also control our resource accounting to the compliance of the product.

Pros: OpenStack is a open-source software platform used for cloud computing. Rackspace Hosting and NASA mutually launched it in 2010. OpenStack architecture is simple and easy to understand and implement. The Heat orchestration provide an ample amount of template to implement the main service pipeline. It simplifies the control for managing the large amount of computing, storage and networking. Dashboard gives the complete infrastructural view and gives the platform to administrate the things in the single web interface. Managing the virtualization of storage, CPU, memory and other resource is easy with using IaaS.

Cons: Public, Private cloud distribution work more efficiently but it needs huge time to setup according to your infrastructures requirement and same time we need for the upgrade of service or product. The other thing I least like in it is management of containers should be more simple as it is one of the most useful feature of OpenStack.

"Not skilled in the cloud--Rackspace helps this."

Pros: We didn't have the necessary staff or know how to operate a cloud platform. The technology of clouds can be daunting but Rackspace made it simple to use.. It is a good product for the money.

"Tested different cloud management platforms"

Pros: The biggest pro of OpenStack is that it's an open-source cloud management platform. - Great performance and scalability.
- New features on a regular basis such as High Availability with Cyborg and support for vGPU.
- Very active community around this product.

Cons: Cons:
- OpenStack is difficult to start with and has a steep learning curve.
- CloudStack is not easy to setup and configure, my recommendation would be to find a good class and safe a lot of frustration.
- Documentation needs work.
- As there's a million of different configuration options and features I would advice anyone to carefully reviews if OpenStack is the right product for your use case.

"Great open source cloud platform"

Comments: I think it is the best option for a small new business.

Pros: OpenStack is a great open source platform for cloud solutions. With its open source way, it gives more options for a customized service. Although, it has other great features like database management.

Cons: OpenStack is really a great platform in open source cloud computing category. However, it still need some improvement in its User Interface. I think the UI should be more user friendly.

"Awesome"

Pros: A huge pro with this software is that it is better than AWS. And it is open-source as well as easy to use.

Cons: A con with this software is that it is not available as on premises. That is the only thing I can think of at this time.
