Apache CloudStack 4.2 Advances the Open Source Cloud

There are quite a few exciting new additions in the 4.2 release across storage, compute and networking, Chip Childers, vice president of the Apache CloudStack project, told eWEEK.

With CloudStack 4.2, the concept of zone-wide primary storage is being added.

“Primary storage is the storage construct that represents the volumes where running virtual machine (VM) disk images are stored,” Childers said.
