Hello Mathias,

I prefer open source, kvm+libvirt whenever possible; I have worked with 
xen/xenserver before though and I could give it a try once again if it 
checks all the boxes.

At the end of the day I want a solution that is reliable; to be honest 
I almost went with Openstack in production, but there're some 
show-stoppers for me, like 1:1 NAT which simply does not work for 
everyone no matter how excited they  get about it.

So what I'm hoping from cloudstack is:
- able to assign public IPs to VMs
- not trap me in the 4094 vlan limit (hence the need for gre or smth 
- ipv6 (i understand this is coming in 4.1)
- decent upgradability, so next `yum update` won't make the wheels fall 

Of course, now that I've been reading/watching stuff about Cloudstack I 
discovered all sorts of nice stuff that I want, like multiple types of 
primary storage etc.

Any pointers?
