Installation overview

The purpose of the Installation section is to demonstrate how to build a multi-node OpenStack cloud with MAAS, Juju, and OpenStack Charms. For easy adoption the cloud will be minimal. Nevertheless, it will be capable of both performing some real work and scaling to fit more ambitious projects. High availability will not be implemented beyond natively HA applications (Ceph, MySQL8, OVN, Swift, and RabbitMQ).

The software versions used in this guide are as follows:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal) for the MAAS server, Juju client, Juju controller, and all cloud nodes (including containers)

  • MAAS 2.9.2

  • Juju 2.9.0

  • OpenStack Wallaby

Proceed to the Install MAAS page to begin your installation journey. Hardware requirements are also listed there.
