OpenStack Installation Guide for Ubuntu

OpenStack Installation Guide for Ubuntu


The OpenStack system consists of several key projects that you install separately. These projects work together depending on your cloud needs. These projects include Compute, Identity Service, Networking, Image Service, Block Storage, Object Storage, Telemetry, Orchestration, and Database. 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 Canonical’s Ubuntu Cloud archive repository.

Explanations of configuration options and sample configuration files are included.


This guide documents OpenStack Liberty release and is frozen since OpenStack Liberty has reached its official end-of-life and will not get any updates by the OpenStack project anymore. Check the OpenStack Documentation page for newer documents.
