A Universe from Nothing: Containerised OpenStack deployment using Kolla, Ansible and Kayobe

Stig Telfer, StackHPC Ltd

Come and experience hands-on what it looks like to deploy OpenStack the modern way, with a containerised control plane using Kolla, Kolla-Ansible and Kayobe. Using a lab environment that simulates a deployment from bare metal, we will take you though what is involved in deploying and configuring: – An OpenStack control plane in which all the services are containerised. – Deployed and configured using Ansible on servers prepared for the purpose. – Provisioned and configured for OpenStack using Kayobe, the Ansible-driven tool for managing bare metal control plane infrastructure. We will demonstrate the advantages of a containerised control plane and the advantages of a modular and extensible deployment framework written in Ansible.
