Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache CloudStack 4.0.0-incubating Released
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 17:21:38 GMT
The Apache CloudStack project is pleased to announce the
4.0.0-incubating release of the CloudStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service
(IaaS) cloud orchestration platform. This is the first release from
within the Apache Incubator, the entry path into the Apache Software
Foundation (ASF).

Apache CloudStack is an integrated software platform that allows users
to build a feature-rich IaaS. CloudStack includes an intuitive user
interface and rich API for managing the compute, networking, accounting,
and storage for private, hybrid, or public clouds. The project entered
the Apache Incubator in April 2012.

The 4.0.0-incubating release represents the culmination of more than six
months work by the CloudStack community. The release includes more than
a dozen new features, many bugfixes, security fixes, and a fully audited
codebase that complies with ASF guidelines. 

##New Features:

 * Inter-VLAN Routing (VPC)
 * Site-to-Site VPN
 * Local Storage Support for Data Volumes
 * Virtual Resource Tagging
 * Secure Console Access on XenServer
 * Added the ability to create a VM without immediately starting it (via
 * Upload an Existing Volume to a Virtual Machine

##CloudStack Collaboration Conference

The CloudStack project will have its first collaboration conference in

conference will provide an opportunity for the community to learn more
about CloudStack, share best practices for deploying CloudStack, and
discuss ideas for upcoming releases.

Apache CloudStack is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache
Software Foundation (ASF). Incubation is required of all newly accepted
projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure,
communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner
consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status
is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the
code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by
the ASF.
