"Citrix Opens Up the Cloud for VMware Customers"
 Latest Release of CloudStack Brings the Leading Open Source Cloud
 Platform to VMware vSphere and OracleVM Users

  "Citrix Systems today announced a new edition of CloudStack, which
   will feature enhanced support for both the VMware vSphere and
   Oracle VM hypervisors, enabling VMware and Oracle customers
   to manage their virtualized servers as a highly available, scalable
   cloud computing environment.  Citrix CloudStack is not just
   a traditional enterprise server virtualization platform with
   cloud management layered on top, it is a production-ready, free
   and open source cloud infrastructure platform that helps providers
   of all types deploy and manage simple, cost-effective cloud services
   that are scalable, secure, and open by design.  The new release is
   based on the same CloudStack solution that has been used by some of
   the world's largest and most successful public clouds to roll out
   new cloud services up to 50 times faster and at one-fifth the cost
   of alternative solutions(1).  This is the first release of
   the product since Citrix acquired in July."

Product Availability
  "Citrix CloudStack with support for VMware vSphere and bare metal
   provisioning is available today as a free download from or as a commercially supported solution from Citrix.
   Oracle VM support will be available in October, followed by
   Microsoft Hyper-V later in Q4.  CloudStack can be deployed
   on-premise or as a hosted cloud service"
