Abstract: Over the last few years the majority of small and large companies moving to cloud computing to develop IT solutions for businesses. It is technology which provides distributed and dynamically shared computing resources using certain operating techniques. In the revolution of information technology, cloud computing is becoming a key paradigm. Cloud computing further classified as Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud. It provides three services which are categorized as Infrastructure-as-Service, Platform-as-Service and Software-as-Service. Open source cloud management platforms providing Infrastructure-as-a-service are now commonly used because of the fastest growth of cloud. Many open source softwares are available for deploying public or private cloud. This paper provides a brief review and comparison of five well-known open source cloud software i.e. Open Nebula, Eucalyptus, OpenStack, Nimbus and Cloud Stack providing IaaS on the basis of their similar features and technology used. After reviewing the importance and features, we have found OpenStack Cloud Platform is more reliable and useful for the enterprises and organization because of its feature and rapid improvements in its features. The distinction in this paper is believed to help people to choose the suitable open source software according to their need.
