It's not really our role to compare solutions or tell one is better than 
the other. I think one key difference as you noticed is that CloudStack 
focuses on key IaaS functionality (VMs as a service, with accompanying 
networking and storage), while OpenStack aims at being a more complete 
cloud framework, and therefore includes advanced services like object 
storage (Swift), Kubernetes clusters provisioning (Magnum), running 
containers / functions... As a result OpenStack is a larger project with 
more features, but also is arguably more complex.

Hope this helps,
