Images that are premade and ready to go would be a huge step in the right direction.
You currently are expected to make them all yourself, which involves a lot of work/knowledge. Its great to be able to build them, but right out of the gate, they are too much work for a new user.

Cool, but for the majority of users considering using Openstack in their organization, the question always goes back to: If I'm not savvy enough yet to install Openstack without these tools, how do I setup TripleO and Ironic? Seems like a chien and egg thing. There has not been much discussion (that I've noticed) re making a deployment process easy to erect. That should be the easy part but it's as confusing as the second part for most who are starting out. Using Openstack to deploy Openstack means the installer method should be straight forward and itself should be easy to install for users with limited understanding of Openstack or the tooling methods used by OOO and Ironic. But the bar to use Openstack continues to be a relatively-high engineering hurdle. It always has been and I'd love to see that change in the next cycle. Something that comes to mind: * Setup Process Definition * Quickstart Wizards * Tooling The above may seem to be dumbing down the process but widespread Openstack adoption requires an easy on-boarding process and so far, it simply doesn't exist. Thoughts?
