    Hi,

    Has anyone experimented with Cloudstack. I started looking into it very recently and I am looking for a place to share experiences and ideas as well as discussing the product.

    It is not a web hosting provider, its the software you run to create an IaaS platform.
    basically, it consists of a manager jvm responsible of orchestrating the hardware and of course hypervisors and agents running on baremetal hosts.

    so far i installed it on a vm on my laptop :)
    i was able to create VMs, tested the live migration as well as HA (which isn't really HA)
    However to test the advanced features such as virtual routers and load balancers, etc.. i need servers on a physical network. cant be done on a single network.

    indeed would be a limitation of such. Probably easier to use SolusVM, Promox etc with a web host provider that supports them ? Never used those for admin end either heh

    Might be possible if they can handle nested virtualisation. Can you run "lsmod | grep kvm" and "egrep -wo 'lm|vmx|svm' /proc/cpuinfo" on your VPS and let me know which ones support nested virtualisation.

    To run a cloud, hypervisors must be installed on the hosts so that the manager can spin up virtual routers and VMs on it. I specifically asked to check for kvm because cloudstack supports xen and kvm and i do not plan on using xen.

    May I ask who is your KVM provider ?
    I might build a test instance of cloud stack on it if the network allows it. I will give you guys access to it if it can be done.
