For most organizations with a large computing footprint, it's not a matter of if you'll need a private cloud - it's when, and what kind. One of the most mature and widely deployed options is Apache CloudStack, a robust, turnkey cloud that includes everything you need to set up a private, public, or hybrid cloud. We'll cover Apache CloudStack from API to UI, and a little of everything in between.
