How about:

"software to provide and support an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) 
cloud computing platform"?

We shouldn't name "Apache CloudStack" as the only product IMO, since we
may want to publish things like CloudMonkey as a separate package at
some point.  I also think we need to drop the qualitative measurements,
given that someone could use it to provide a non-highly available and
small cloud (if they were to be interested in doing so).
