Self-hosted AWS (Cloudstack)

Hi Forum.

This thread will document my journey in creating a DIY/Budget AWS at home using Apache Cloudstack, XCP-ng, and my prize from the December contest.

(Disks not included)

This first post is to get me started thinking about the project and I will be sharing my design ideas and other concepts that the community can follow and play with.

The end goal is to have a kind of run book on how to set this up by hand and maybe later with automation.>

Here are some links to the tech stacks that I will be using


Awesome been playing a bit with Cloudstack some time ago. It’s great! But I’m entrenched in OpenStack. It’s soo much easier than OpenStack to setup and the new dashboard looks awesome!
