+#What is CloudStack?
 
+Apache CloudStack (Incubating) is software designed to deploy and manage large networks of
virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
cloud computing platform. CloudStack is used by a number of service providers to offer public
cloud services, and by many companies to provide an on-premises (private) cloud offering.
 
+Apache CloudStack currently supports the most popular hypervisors: VMware, Oracle VM, KVM,
XenServer and Xen Cloud Platform. CloudStack also offers bare metal management of servers,
using PXE to provision OS images and IPMI to manage the server.
 
+CloudStack [was proposed][1] by Citrix to the Apache Software Foundation in early April and
[accepted as a podling project][2] on Monday April 16th.

 ## Disclaimer
 
 Apache CloudStack is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF).
 
 Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that
the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner
consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily
a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project
has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
