>>> Introducing Apache CloudStack™ 
>>> The mature, Open Source turnkey software platform used for creating
>> Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing in private-, public-, and 
>> hybrid cloud environments. 
>>> Faster to the Cloud 
>>> As organizations move towards cloud computing services to alleviate the
>> burden of managing/maintaining legacy systems, equipment, and networking, many 
>> are choosing IaaS solutions to help reduce costs whilst minimizing business 
>> layer repercussions. ZDNet projects that enterprises will spend $650M for 
>> enterprise public cloud IaaS by 2018. 
>>> To facilitate the cloud transition, IaaS combines compute and cloud
>> storage, where the hardware (or virtual machines), computing power, cooling, and

>> networking are outsourced; users of IaaS solutions control the stack required to

>> operate it, such as the operating system, virtual machines, storage, database 
>> servers, Web servers, load-balancing, monitoring, reporting, logging, 
>> middleware, hardware/software upgrades, patches, security fixes, licensing, etc.

>>> The cloud offers massive computing power. The challenge, however, is that
>> many of today's cloud management platforms are cumbersome and difficult to 
>> deploy, making it an often frustrating and resource-intensive investment. 
>>> Apache CloudStack is designed to deploy quickly and manage large networks
>> of virtual machines as a highly available, highly scalable cloud computing 
>> platform. CloudStack integrates easily with other technologies, and includes the

>> entire "stack" of features most organizations are seeking with an IaaS 
>> cloud: 
>>>     elegant, Java-based framework 
>>>     compute orchestration 
>>>     advanced Network-as-a-Service functionality 
>>>     user and account management 
>>>     a full and open native API (compatible with Amazon Web Services
>> Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) for organizations that wish to deploy hybrid clouds)

>>>     resource accounting 
>>>     choice of first-class User Interface, command line tools, or 
>> full-featured RESTful API to delegate and create self-service offerings 
>>>     scalability (production instances with greater than 40,000 hosts in
>> geographically-distributed environments) 
>>>     user-led development and deployment documentation 
>>>     supports the most popular hypervisors (including VMware, KVM,
>> XenServer, Xen Cloud Platform (XCM), and Hyper-V to run the virtual machines as 
>> guests) 
>>> Apache CloudStack: The Cloud That Just Works! 
>>> "CloudStack is gaining better 'real world' adoption … because
>> it's actually usable in its current form without special effort" 
>>> –Gartner Group 
>>> Apache CloudStack is widely used in production by many service providers to
>> set up on-demand, elastic public cloud computing services, as well as 
>> enterprises to set up a private or hybrid cloud for use by their own employees. 
>> In addition, CloudStack is available to individuals and organizations that wish 
>> to study and implement an IaaS for personal, educational, and/or production use.

>>> Apache CloudStack users power billions of dollars' worth of business
>> transactions annually across their clouds, and benefit from: 
>>> -    Proven technology –CloudStack is among the earliest IaaS solutions
>> developed, with many long-term, large deployments that prove its stability and 
>> scalability 
>>> -    Stable codebase –the latest release reflects more than 1.5M lines of
>> code from 170 contributors 
>>> -    Easy deployment –a Fortune 50 multinational had CloudStack up,
>> running, and usable within in a single day, as opposed to weeks using competing 
>> IaaS solutions 
>>> -    Highly scalable –CloudStack’s orchestration platforms have been used
>> to scale to [@@what is the right/best example to use here? Uri Cohen’s 200K 
>> concurrent users at peak? Something else?] 
>>> -    Flexibility –CloudStack is designed to handle the spectrum of
>> application/cloud styles that span "legacy virtualization" through 
>> "cloud-native" style workloads, depending on how the cloud operator 
>> designs the infrastructure environment(s) and configures CloudStack to offer 
>> services 
>>> -    Reliability –CloudStack accommodates for redundancy and resiliency,
>> providing faster recovery and response time; Europe’s first CloudStack
