I am a grad student and as part of my capstone, I have to set up a cloud network using Cloudstack. I have been trying to use the official Apache installation guide and it is COMPLEX. I have a Windows PC and it seems that this needs Linux. There's also a lot of smaller tasks like validating keys and releases. Since this is considered independent research, my professor told me it is my responsibility to figure it out. As someone that is brand new to the cloud world, can I get some general advice?
