Hi everyone,

I wanted to share this with the group in the hopes that we could get
some feedback. We've built a set of Ansible playbooks to install &
configure a "full" OpenStack deployment based on the Red Hat packaging
on CentOS 6.

(Ansible is a configuration management and software deployment
automation tool: http://www.ansibleworks.com/)

Here are the playbooks and some basic documentation:


I'm interested to know what folks think and if anyone finds this
useful. I think it might be useful for quick deployments (you can go
from a group of minimally installed CentOS boxes to OpenStack in 20-30
minutes), and I think this could serve as the basis for a more
sophisticated production deployment mechanism.

FWIW, there is a tool called PackStack which uses Puppet to fully
automate deployments of OpenStack in a matter of minutes. It is
the tool that Red Hat currently recommend for deployment on Fedora,
RHEL & CentOS, etc


And for completeness, for folks using Chef, there is an OpenStack + Chef mailing list [1], an example Chef repo, and a set of OpenStack-specific cookbooks housed on Stackforge [2]. Currently everything is under very active development, with a focus on getting turnkey installation like PackStack done by the Havana release.
