OpenStack Installation Tutorial for Debian

OpenStack Installation Tutorial for Debian


The OpenStack system consists of several key services that are separately installed. These services work together depending on your cloud needs and include the Compute, Identity, Networking, Image, Block Storage, Object Storage, Telemetry, Orchestration, and Database services. 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).


This guide uses installation with debconf set to non-interactive mode. That is, there will be no debconf prompt. To configure a computer to use this mode, run the following command:

# dpkg-reconfigure debconf

If you prefer to use debconf, refer to the debconf install-guide for Debian.

Explanations of configuration options and sample configuration files are included.

This guide documents the OpenStack Newton release.
