Abstract: the number of open source cloud management platforms is increasing day-by-day. The features of these software vary significantly and this creates a difficulty for the cloud consumers to choose the software based on their business and scientific requirements. This paper evaluates Eucalyptus and CloudStack, the two most popular open source platforms used to build private Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) clouds. The performance of virtual machines (VMs) initiated and managed by Eucalyptus and CloudStack are evaluated in terms of CPU utilization, memory bandwidth, disk I/O access speed, and network performance using suitable benchmarks. Different VM management operations such as add, delete and live migration are also assessed to determine which cloud solution is more suitable than other to be adopted as a private cloud solution. As a further performance testing, a simple web application has been implemented on the both clouds to evaluate their suitability in web application hosting.
