Cloud infrastructure management is now an emerging problem in cloud computing. Open source projects such as Nimbus, Eucalyptus and OpenNebula provide the great opportunity for industries, researchers and scientists to understand the modern cloud infrastructure model. Here, the authors' project aims to survey among these three open source cloud infrastructure management tools and provides detail taxonomy among them. In the past few years, data-center supercomputer model has become very popular on the fly with the growing, emerging computing phenomenon, cloud computing. Within this new computing generation, several new opportunities can be provided as "X as a Service" (XaaS), where X are application, platform, or infrastructure.
