The phenomenon "cloud computing" started from 2006-07 but it came into existence through a veiy smooth historical events. From the concept of multiprogramming then virtualization, grid computing, SaaS, utility computing and then finally cloud computing came to today's IT world. Though, the tools used to build cloud are increasing day by day, so it makes a confusion and difficulty to select a suitable tool for the cloud consumers and enterprises to build their cloud for business purpose due to holding various features. Due to facing this problem, it is now inevitable to differentiate these tools. For this reason, this study is about to build a basic infrastructure of two separate clouds using two open source IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud tools i.e., OpenStack and CloudStack to check how these two differ from each other. This study will also show their evaluation and future scopes.
