Citrix will submit its CloudStack solution to the Apache Software Foundation. CloudStack brings to Apache more than 30,000 community members, thousands of certified apps, and hundreds of production clouds, collectively generating more than $1 billion in cloud revenue from some of the biggest brands in the industry, says Citrix. Citrix will also deliver a commercially supported release of the proposed Apache CloudStack distribution as the centerpiece of its cloud infrastructure product portfolio.
Citrix CloudStack 3 is released under Apache License 2.0, and the CloudStack.org community will become part of the Apache Incubator program. Citrix will further support the project with a significantly increased investment in engineering, community support and marketing, says the company.
