OpenStack continues to grow exponentially as the de facto standard for open source Cloud platforms. But how can someone quickly get started with learning this exciting new technology? This workshop will walk participants through an overview of the OpenStack components and offer practical suggestions and resources for learning OpenStack. To demonstrate one way to get
started, we will assist workshop attendees to set up a multi-node OpenStack cloud, on their laptops, using Red Hat's RDO and the
Packstack utility.

Participants will be introduced to a range of cloud functionality including those that were added to the Icehouse release. During the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to the following:
  • Installing OpenStack on their laptops
  • Walking through the Horizon dashboard
  • Adding new users
  • Adding an image to Glance
  • Defining networks in Neutron
  • Starting a new virtual server
  • Creating and attaching Cinder storage volumes to virtual servers
  • Storing objects in Swift Using the Horizon Dashboard user interface
  • Exploring Ceilometer metrics
Instructions to prepare for the workshop can be found at http://openstack.redhat.com/GettingStartedIcehouse_w_GRE.
