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.

The rest of this section is out of date, and hopefully will be updated soon. In the mean time, see the "OpenStack Installation Guide for openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise" and "SUSE Cloud" sections below.

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.
