Thread: Which Cloud Platform?

Which Cloud Platform?
I have a question, it seems simple but is probably complicated...
If you were to build a cloud right now, what would you use (software) to build it with? Would you use OnApp, OpenStack, Cloudstack, proxmox cloud, etc?
Depending on your software of choice for building your cloud stack, what would you use for billing and provisioning?
The goals I'm looking for are Failover, Automated Billing/Provisioning of resources, and centralized storage.

My answer is VMware. Is has amazing High Availability (HA) and Automated Fault-Tolerance. The HA reduces any possible downtime result of failure of the underlying physical host or the Operating system of the Cloud server. It monitors and in case of outage, just restarts the instance on a different host, part of the cluster (Yes, you must have at least 3 physical nodes). The Automated Fault Tolerance guarantees zero downtime. It requires 4 physical hosts/servers. Should you have the fault-tolerance functionality active, there's no interruption of the services. It is beautiful. We use VMware for almost 2 years in both data centers of ours.
We have been on OpenNebula before and it was very much pain to deal with them. Some partners say OpenStack works good, We tried to implement for a customer, but still it is not better than VMware's Cloud automation technology.

For our private cloud customers, we primary use CloudStack and CEPH for storage.
If done correctly, it's is very stable, fault tolerant, and easy to manage.█ █ RDO Servers - Shared Hosting, Resellers, VPS, Dedicated Servers & Clusters

We were using VMware. We have migrated our hosts to Proxmox and created 6 nodes Proxmox cluster with CEPH Storage Cluster.
We have almost all VMware functionalities in Proxmox like VMotion (Live Migration), Storage VMotion, High Availability (HA), Clone, Create template, etc.
Also Proxmox Supports LXC (Linux Containers is an operating-system-level virtualization method), which has a big VPS market.
Proxmox has built-in backup system, you don't need separate VDP Appliance. Only thing I'm missing is vSphere Replication.
Also Proxmox has WHMCS module for easy provision.

It will certainly depend upon your experience. OnApp is one the easiest way for an inexperience company to start selling their own Cloud Infrastructure.
For someone who is just entering the market without any prior experience, OnApp will certainly be the best bet for them. Alternatively, if you have a good budget and experience techs with you
then CloudStack and VMware are really good options.

VMware will be the best option

On a cloud platform resources are scaled when its required . Suppose at 2:00 PM you dont have much traffic but still you have 100% ram utilized. Suddently at 6:00 PM traffic rise up. Your server would need more traffic. In that case more ram will be assigned to your server to handle the traffic and keep your website up and working. The RAM will be same on the main physical server. But the free ram that is not in use will be added to your server automatically.

Yes, VMware is costly but best option to choose.

Apart from public, private and hybrid cloud computing, here are some of the emerging trends in cloud implementation consultation practices that are expected to rein the market in 2017. It is important for us to be aware of these as we endeavor to align our business strategies towards ensuring successful cloud implementation.
1.Integrative management of multiple cloud service providers
2.The emergence of Cloud monitoring as a service (CMaaS)
3.Ability to switch between different cloud platforms & service providers
4.Auditing the cloud services and security levels
