said. He pointed out that the POC was conducted a year ago, and that
OpenStack is evolving constantly. However, he also said that using
CloudStack is like turning to a contractor to build your house, whereas
using OpenStack is like walking into Home Depot and figuring everything out
on your own.*

Stack wars: OpenStack v. CloudStack v. Eucalyptus

> While most independent sources interviewed for this story contend that

> "If SoftLayer can pull it off where they're both a CloudStack and an
OpenStack provider, and it doesn't diminish either one of their values, it

customers, then it's going to be a different kind of story -- and there's
potential for both those stories here."
