OpenStack Installation Tutorial for Debian with debconf


The OpenStack system consists of several key services that are separately installed. These services work together depending on your cloud needs. These services include Compute service, Identity service, Networking service, Image service, Block Storage service, Object Storage service, Telemetry service, Orchestration service, and Database service. You can install any of these projects separately and configure them stand-alone or as connected entities.

This guide walks through an installation by using packages available through Debian 8 (code name: Jessie).

Explanations of configuration options and sample configuration files are included.

This guide documents OpenStack Newton release.
