Hi Ivan,

Indeed, nodepool nodes have MySQL and PostgreSQL installed and
running. There are databases you can access from your tests
and postgresql://openstack_citest:openstack_citest@localhost/openstack_citest).
[1] is a great example how it's actually used for running
backend-specific DB test cases in oslo-incubator.

Besides, openstack_citest user in PostgreSQL is allowed to create/drop
databases, which enables us to implement a slightly different approach
of running DB tests [2]. This might be very useful when you need more
that one DB schema (e.g. to run tests concurrently).
