CloudStack became an Apache Top-level Project (TLP) back in March 2013, and is the open source muscle behind many cloud deployments. Originally donated to Apache by Citrix, CloudStack depends on community contributions to keep its feature set growing and its security hardened. This week, CloudOps, which provides private, public and hybrid cloud solutions for enterprises, announced security enhancements that the company has contributed to Apache CloudStack and the availability of their implementation and managed services for Apache CloudStack 4.3.
Apache CloudStack is an integrated Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud platform that has been well maintained by Apache, and it recently arrived in version 4.3. For its part, CloudOps has contributed code to CloudStack 4.3 that enables support of Palo Alto Networks as an integrated security service and that enables a new Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) termination.
