Submission + - Citrix submits cloud-building software to Apache Foundation (arstechnica.com)

Galestar writes: "Citrix today said that software for building Amazon EC2-style cloud platforms will be submitted to the Apache Software Foundation in an effort to accelerate its development.

Known as CloudStack, the software was acquired by Citrix when it bought the vendor Cloud.com in July 2011 for a reported $200 million. CloudStack was initially a mix of proprietary software and open source code released under the GPL free software license. Citrix said CloudStack will now become a "full open source Apache project," to be released today under the Apache 2.0 license, and also announced that it has increased its financial sponsorship and engineering support for the Apache Foundation."
