Getting started

  • The OpenStack Charms use Juju to deploy and manage OpenStack services, so getting to know Juju is a great first step.

  • You might want to try out the charms on your local machine (or virtual machine) using the Juju LXD provider and the OpenStack on LXD bundle if you don’t have physical servers to use or just want to contribute a fix or change.

  • For bare-metal deployment, Juju uses MAAS to provision and configure physical servers, so that’s a good next step.

  • Once you have MAAS setup, you can try out the OpenStack Base bundle from the Juju charm store.
