Installing Across Multiple Systems for a Multi-node Havana OpenStack Configuration

This chapter describes how to install a multi-node OpenStack configuration. Each cloud needs only one dashboard instance, one image store, and one identity service. Each cloud can have any number of storage and compute instances. In a production environment, these services are configured across multiple nodes. Evaluate each component with respect to your needs for a particular cloud deployment to determine whether that component should be installed on a separate node and how many of that type of node you need.

Note -  This chapter applies to a Havana-specific OpenStack configuration. The Juno version of OpenStack is supported only beginning from the Oracle Solaris 11.2 SRU10 release.

This chapter describes an architecture that is deployed on separate physical systems. To partition a single Oracle SPARC server and configure multi-node OpenStack on the server running OVM Server for SPARC (LDoms), see Multi-node Solaris 11.2 OpenStack on SPARC Servers.
