Setting up IaaS – On-demand self-service tool

Hello all,

I am looking for a tool that can allow me to provide on-demand self-service to consumers (including billing/payment integration like pay-as-you-go) and also will allow external consumers to spin up instances. I will like to customize the pages to add my branding. Basically, if I want to set up the next AWS EC2, or DigitalOcean which tool provides the on-demand capability.

I have deployed Openstack & Cloudstack. While they're good, it seems there is no way to add the on-demand portion that makes the service from virtualization to cloud service. Also, both Openstack and cloudstack require sooo much maintenance, and still unstable.

I am thinking of using ESXi, and VCenter, but unsure if VCloud Director will provide what I am looking for. Eventually, I am willing to pay for licensing.
