  5. 5. Why vSphere and Apache CloudStack? • Existing investment into hardware and virtualization technology (AKA 3 Year Headlock) • Largest Virtualization Market Share (Gartner 2012) • It works well • Rapid migration to alternative virtualization technology maybe costly for enterprise customers

  10. 10. Option 2: Do it yourself • Get over the fear of rolling your own Apache CloudStack versions • Review Functional Specification of developed feature posted on Wiki and note the CloudStack Issue ID • Backport minimally impacting and most useful features and bug fixes only • Thoroughly review the changes on review board / git to see if there are no missing dependencies • Build, test, debug, test and test again!
  11. 11. Basic Requirements • CentOS 6.x or Debian • GIT Version Control Knowledge • Minimal Java Knowledge • General Programming Concepts • Use DevCloud Guide or clone CloudStack git repo and follow instructions in Install.md file
