This is mainly for me to dream what would be if I could get together enough hardware.
So the question is how to build a cloud on a budget and whether open source is stable enough.
I found OpenStack which looks promising.
Are there any suggestions on how to setup a cloud which can support 10-20 live instances
Is it possible to build a heterogeneous cloud, mixing machine types?
Ive done a good amount of work in the cloud(Amazon's and IBM's) but I have never fully understood what is necessary for a setup like that to work.
