We run OpenNebula based Cloud. Yesterday we ran into a very weird software issue, having one of the VMs in "Pending" status after a reboot, without being able to do nothing. We're speaking with the OpenNebula support and are about to deepen our knowledge of this Cloud automation PaaS. It is not what I would like to chat to you however.
I was wandering what kind of Cloud IaaS and/or PaaS platform you guys use (have experience with) to create and managing Cloud infrastructure? I mean specifically for creating Virtual Instances (VMs)?
We use OnApp and love it. It's very powerful and feature rich, although a little pricey, the support is amazing and they will go above and beyond to assist you with anything you need help with. You get what you pay for and I highly recommend OnApp for Cloud.
Through our various tests, we found that CloudStack is the most mature of the options currently available.

In my last company we had a platform based on open stack which needed quite a lot of dev work, at my present company we use onapp, I wouldn't have the technical knowledge to say which is better but opapp as an out of the box solution does seem to have a lot more set up.
