Apache CloudStack vs Eucalyptus: What are the differences?

Developers describe Apache CloudStack as "Open Source Cloud Computing". Apache CloudStack is open source 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. On the other hand, Eucalyptus is detailed as "*Open source AWS compatible private cloud *". Eucalyptus is open source software for building private, AWS-compatible IT, QA, and developer clouds. It makes it easy to deliver cloud computing, just like AWS, from within your data center.

Apache CloudStack and Eucalyptus can be primarily classified as "Open Source Cloud" tools.

Some of the features offered by Apache CloudStack are:

  • Works with hosts running XenServer/XCP, KVM, Hyper-V, and/or VMware ESXi with vSphere
  • Provides a friendly Web-based UI for managing the cloud
  • Provides a native API

On the other hand, Eucalyptus provides the following key features:

  • Hybrid Cloud Management - Launch instances, create snapshots and manage autoscaling groups in either your private or public clouds from a single environment. Now the same powerful and easy to use self-service interface that provisions and manages Eucalyptus Cloud resources can manage your AWS cloud resources.
  • AWS Compatibility - Eucalyptus provides industry-leading compatibility with popular Amazon Web Services (AWS) APIs including EC2, S3, Elastic Block Store (EBS), Identity and Access Management (IAM), Auto Scaling, Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), and CloudWatch.
  • Compute - Eucalyptus allows you to use industry-standard servers, storage, networking, and virtualization technologies to deliver cost-effective, AWS-compatible cloud services in your datacenter. Eucalyptus is compatible with AWS’s EC2 and allows you to easily deploy compute resources and efficiently increase or decrease compute capacity based on application demands.

Apache CloudStack is an open source tool with 746 GitHub stars and 714 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apache CloudStack's open source repository on GitHub.
