DevStack

DevStack - an OpenStack Community Production

A documented shell script to build complete OpenStack development environments.
An OpenStack program maintained by the developer community.
  1. Setup a fresh supported Linux installation.

  2. Clone devstack from git.openstack.org.

    git clone https://git.openstack.org/openstack-dev/devstack
  3. Deploy your OpenStack Cloud

    cd devstack && ./stack.sh

Quick Start This ain’t your first rodeo

  1. Select a Linux Distribution

    Only Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty), Fedora 20 and CentOS/RHEL 6.5 are documented here. OpenStack also runs and is packaged on other flavors of Linux such as OpenSUSE and Debian.

  2. Install Selected OS

    In order to correctly install all the dependencies, we assume a specific minimal version of the supported distributions to make it as easy as possible. We recommend using a minimal install of Ubuntu or Fedora server in a VM if this is your first time.

  3. Download DevStack

    git clone https://git.openstack.org/openstack-dev/devstack

    The devstack repo contains a script that installs OpenStack and templates for configuration files

  4. Configure

    We recommend at least a minimal configuration be set up.

  5. Start the install

    cd devstack; ./stack.sh

    It takes a few minutes, we recommend reading the script while it is building.

Virtual Machine

Run OpenStack in a VM. The VMs launched in your cloud will be slow as they are running in QEMU (emulation), but it is useful if you don’t have spare hardware laying around.
