In this tutorial, we will learn about open-source cloud platforms. A cloud platform is a type of computing infrastructure that provides users with access to computing resources such as servers, storage, databases, software applications, networking, and other tools over the Internet. Open-source cloud platforms are cloud computing platforms that are built on open-source technologies and are available for the public to use.
Open Source Cloud Platforms
Some popular open-source cloud platforms are as follows:
- Apache CloudStack
- Cloud Foundry
Apache CloudStack is open-source cloud computing software for creating, managing, and deploying infrastructure cloud services. This platform is designed to position and manage the cloud computing environment. It is an IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) cloud computing platform. Service providers use the CloudStack platform to offer public, private, and hybrid cloud services.

OpenStack is an open-source cloud software platform used for building public and private clouds. It provides a set of tools for building and managing cloud computing platforms for public/private clouds.
OpenShift is an enterprise container application platform developed by Red Hat, which is designed to help developers build, deploy, and manage applications in a cloud environment. It is based on the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system, and it provides a set of tools and features that simplify the deployment and management of containerized applications.

Eucalyptus is an open-source software platform for implementing IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) in a private, public, or hybrid cloud computing environment.
Cloud Foundry is an open-source, multi-cloud Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that
allows cloud developers to deploy, run, and manage their applications in the cloud. It provides a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, and deploy cloud applications.
