Been playing with OpenStack a bit the last few days. I have had a bit of a busy spell so I have not had too much time to play with it as much as I wanted to, but some things to note:
- If you want to get started with a single server, RedHat’s RDO OpenStack distribution seems like a great option. Check it out at https://openstack.redhat.com/ and the quickstart guide at https://openstack.redhat.com/Quickstart.
- Debian now has images for OpenStack as of Jessie – see http://docs.openstack.org/image-guide/content/ch_obtaining_images.html#debian-images and http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/openstack/. Pretty awesome news if you are a Debian fan like myself.
These two things are going to make the setup of my home lab much more pleasant, I will have to say. 🙂
