CloudStack Graduates to Top-Level Apache Status

It’s a little early in the year for “Pomp and Circumstance,” but don’t tell that to CloudStack .

Cloud APIs: It's the Architecture that Matters

Lack of excitement is not something the cloud market can be accused of! Citrix just announced a bold roadmap for its CloudStack platform coming right on the heels of a Eucalyptus and Amazon announcement to extend API compatibility and just two weeks before the OpenStack summit.

New Database Managers Our Database Manager for MySQL is one of our most popular ServerTemplates , serving as the rock-solid...Read more

VMops Rebrands to Cloud.com and Opens Source

Pretty bold move by VMops! It bought the cloud.com domain and is rebranding to Cloud.com on the occasion of its new release, now called CloudStack 2.0, which it is also open-sourcing at open.cloud.com .
