OpenStack is a massively scalable open source cloud operating system that is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. OpenStack provides series of interrelated projects delivering various components for a cloud infrastructure solution as well as controls large pools of storage, compute and networking resources throughout a datacenter that all managed through a dashboard(Horizon) that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface. In this paper, we present a comparative study of Cloud Computing Platform such as Eucalyptus, Openstack, CloudStack and Opennebula which is open source software, cloud computing layered model, components of OpenStack, architecture of OpenStack. Further discussing about how to install Openstack as well as how to build virtual machine (VM) in Openstack cloud using CLI on RHEL 6.4 and at last covering latest OpenStack releases Icehouse, which is used for building public, private, and hybrid clouds and introduce what new features added in Icehouse. The aim of this paper is to show mainly importance of OpenStack as a Cloud provider and give the best solution for service providers as well as enterprises.
