Cloud.com's CloudStack Goes 100% Open Source

The formerly separate Cloud.com and CloudStack code bases are being merged and released under GPL v3.

TechCrunch: Citrix has announced that it has merged the Cloud.com and CloudStack code bases, and the resulting code is available under the open source GPL v3 license. Previously, the Cloud.com code used by paying customers was different than the open source CloudStack code. Citrix purchased Cloud.com (which also owned the CloudStack project) for $200 million last month.

The company also announced that CloudStack now supports VMware’s ESXi 5.0 hypervisor, Oracle’s VM 2.X variants of the Xen hypervisor, and bare-metal provisioning.
