Welcome to CloudStack Installation Documentation



We are in the process of changing documentation format as well as hosting mechanism. Please be patient with us as we migrate our entire documentation to this new setup.

This is the Apache CloudStack installation guide, for the Documentation home, the administrator guide or the Release-Notes please see:


In this guide we first go through some design and architectural choices to build your cloud. Then we dive into a single node quick start guide to give you a feel for the installation process. The source installation steps are given in the follow-on section for people who want to build their own packages. Otherwise you can use the general installation which makes use of community maintained package repositories. The rest of the guide goes through the configuration of the data-center and the setup of the network, storage and hypervisors.
