In this talk we will briefly introduce CloudStack and quickly dive into a sandbox called DevCloud. DevCloud can be used for code development or for easy access to an all-in-one CloudStack setup that reduces the barrier of entry to the project.
CloudStack is an incubating Apache project. It allows users to build a IaaS implementation that is hypervisor agnostic, highly scalable, java based and community driven. While CloudStack is straightforward to compile from source or install from binaries, the availability of a sandbox which provides a fully functional all-in-one system tremendously eases the setup process and empowers users to dive straight into the management server functionality, explore the GUI and test the native API as well as the AWS compatible API.
