Cloud computing is a great design of technology ever made which provides services, applications, and resources through a network. Cloud computing gives the opportunity to use a very large amount of resources on demand. There are many cloud infrastructures as a service (IaaS) frameworks that exist for users, developers, and administrators and they have to make a decision about which environment is best suited for them. In this paper, we focus to analyze and evaluate the performance of the open-source OpenStack for IaaS cloud computing, and give the comparison between OpenStack and VMware. We outline some of our initial findings by providing such a testbed on OpenStack. The experimental results showed the advantages of OpenStack solution in cloud computing where infrastructure is provided as a service.
