    Cloud Computing is realy only the buzz (marketing) word of advertisement marketing-people which want to sell you virtualisation. If you install Vmware, VirtualBox, Quemu, ESX, Citrix or simply activate Hyper-V in your Windows8 install you already have your own private Cloud. Add virtual instances and install a OS in this instance and you already have Cloud-Computing-Abilities.

    The apps you are looking for are only for managing (adding virtual isntances, installing OS on it and metereing (for billing) there Use) the Virtual Instances. There are several OpenSource ones but none of the is simple to install and configure. I havn't found any Cloud-App which installs with one click.
