Subject RE: CloudStack vs CloudPlatform
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2012 17:48:00 GMT
The CPBM system requirements doc implies you can use it with open-source CloudStack. However,
it looks to me as if they haven't carefully updated all their docs since they renamed CloudStack
to CloudPlatform, so I wouldn't trust the doc 100%. This isn't really a discussion for the
cloudstack-dev list, though -- I just had to add a doc link to this thread. It's a tech writer
compulsion.

You might need to ask CPBM team for their support but I suspect it is most likely support
for CloudPlatform only.
