For the last several weeks I’ve been explaining the setup of my home Rackspace Private Cloud and OpenStack lab. From the basic hardware configuration and adding compute nodes to adding high availability and using Neutron networking.
In just five sessions we’ve gone from bare-metal to a seven-node cloud. Here are the steps we’ve conquered so far:
- Part 1: The Setup
- Part 2: The Networking
- Part 3: Installing A High Availability Rackspace Private Cloud With Chef Cookbooks
- Part 4: Neutron
- Part 5: Adding Extra Compute Nodes
There’s more to come. Stay tuned as I continue to build out my OpenStack-powered Rackspace Private Cloud.
