Detailed Description

Cloudstack provides a mature Compute and Networking as a service platform for IaaS.

Benefit to Fedora

More cloud choices in Fedora. Cloudstack brings multi-tenant, high availability (fault tolerance really), complex networking, multi-hypervisor awesomeness to Fedora.


There are currently fewer than 10 outstanding packaging dependencies, in addition the package itself which has a decent spec file already in existence will need to be reviewed and accepted. Aside from that this shouldn't have any bearing on other parts of the distribution. Will need to write some SELinux policy as well.

How To Test

Provision a cloud - run virtual machines on it.

User Experience

This will provide users the ability to provision an IaaS cloud using Fedora.

Contingency Plan

We'll push to F17. No further plan needed.
