"Apache CloudStack has been at the very foundation of Telia CLOUDY SERVICES already for more than 3 years," said Mārtiņš Paurs, CCO of CLOUDY SERVICES by Telia Latvia. "After starting with regular IaaS services, during time it has taken over orchestration of Cloud based video surveillance, CDN and video lifecycle management workloads, all for the benefit of our customers. And CloudStack does it really well! The ease of use, stability, professional and community support, powerful features and scale we can achieve by using CloudStack has turned upside down the way and pace we innovate together with the very demanding market."
"cloud.ca is an avid supporter of Apache CloudStack not only because we value the stability and robustness of the platform, but because we highly value the power of the CloudStack community to drive innovation," said Mike Gero, Vice President of Product & Business Development at cloud.ca. "We look forward to benefiting from the myriad of improvements and fixes in CloudStack 4.9, as well as beginning to work with new features like the enhanced networking model."
"At University of São Paulo we are proud to be part of the Apache CloudStack community. We see the community playing a very strong role in solving many issues and providing ongoing effort to improve Apache CloudStack through recent versions, including 4.9," said Professor João Eduardo Ferreira, IT Office CIO, and Cyrano Rizzo, Sao Paulo IT Office Director, at University of São Paulo. "We are very happy to have adopted Apache CloudStack since 2012 as our main tool to run our infrastructure private cloud initiative of +500 hosts. Apache CloudStack is a professional-grade and very robust tool: we continue to use and encourage other institutions to use the same architecture."
