Hi,

I'm trying to see what are the cloud solutions out there. I have seen openstack and onapp. I can see most of the people are using openstack.

Is onapp using openstack in the backend or it is completely diffrent ?

OnApp cannot use OpenStack in the backend.  OpenStack is open-source software.  OnApp is proprietary Infrastructure As A Service.

OpenStack doesn't have a hypervisor.  OpenStack integrates with hypervisor technologies.  There are many different brands of OpenStack (e.g., Mirantis, Oracle, etc.).  VMware will unleash a version of OpenStack in the future.  

OnApp can do what OpenStack does and more.   This means that OnApp customers can purchase computing power from OnApp.
