the cloud.com stack has always been open - and as far as I know, citrix 
are actually moving to try and close up some parts of it ( based on 
conversations around beer, please verify! )

I have deployed cloud.com for testing purposes, its quite nice. At the 
time ( early 2011 ) it was also the only complete end to end cloud setup 
that actually worked for private, offline instances.

only real issue I had was that its quite resource intensive and targets 
fairly new hardware ( ie: lots of resources )
