OpenStack is an open source project that provides an infrastructure as a service platform to build cloud-aware applications, and it Supports multiple hypervisors for provisioning and orchestrating the cloud. It can run multi-tier workloads or open source development tools. End users can easily provision resources. Supports almost all the hypervisors in the world including VMware ESXi, Xen, KVM. Easily integrated with VMware hypervisor & Hyper-V to utilize existing infrastructure. complex to set up and troubleshoot. Requires significant automation.OpenStack and KVM hypervisor is free, but require configuration by skilled administrators

VMware is not about cloud, it is a data center automation, it has redundancy and availability built into the infrastructure.Features(vSphere HA, vMotion, DRS, I/O control) with very large ecosystems. In its native state, only the Systems Administrator has access to the tool. The ESXi hypervisor that comes with VMware is free, but licensing fees are required for the APIs.
