Last week, I reported that the Apache Software Foundation has delivered its CloudStack 4.2 open source cloud computing platform. The foundation announced the arrival of version 4.2 online, and has been steadily updating CloudStack ever since Citrix contributed it to Apache and the open source community. CloudStack doesn’t get as much attention as OpenStack does, but a number of organizations use it and like it, and now some positive notices about the new version and its growing usage are arriving.
Version 4.2 of CloudStack is the second release of the platform since Apache started overseeing it. If you’ve followed the history of the Apache Software Foundation, you know that it has done a good job as a steward of numerous open source projects. CloudStack is classified as a top-level project at Apache.
