SDB:Cloud OpenStack Quickstart
tagline: From openSUSE
OpenStack installation from RPM packages on openSUSE
Packages for OpenStack are built under sub-projects of the OBS Cloud:OpenStack repository. See OpenStack and Crowbar development process for the workflow.
zypper in -t pattern openstack-controller openstack-compute-node
will install the following OpenStack components on one host:
- OpenStack Compute: Nova
- OpenStack Image Service: Glance
- OpenStack Identity Service: Keystone
- OpenStack Dashboard: Horizon
The package openstack-quickstart provides the script openstack-quickstart-demosetup which will configure a working demo setup of openstack on your host. If you intend to add more nodes to your cloud, best set the IP value in the openstack-quickstart-demosetup script to your public IP-address.
Before running openstack-quickstart-demosetup you should set the testnet variable in it to an ip range that is available in your local network.
The credentials to login to the OpenStack dashboard webapp are: admin:openstack
OpenStack Installation Guide for openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
The OpenStack documentation site contains an Installation Guide that covers installation and setup of OpenStack for openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. If you would like to setup OpenStack manually via RPM packages, this is a well documented route.
Automated deployment via SUSE Cloud
The easiest way to try out OpenStack on SUSE-based distributions is probably to use SUSE Cloud which is an enterprise product based on SLES which uses Crowbar for automated deployment. You can download the evaluation version of SUSE Cloud 3 (based on OpenStack's Havana release), or for accelerated testing, try the SUSE Cloud 3 Admin node appliance with embedded software repositories; see this blog post for more details.
