The RDO community is pleased to announce the general availability of the
RDO build for OpenStack Mitaka for RPM-based distributions - CentOS
Linux 7 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. RDO is suitable for building
private, public, and hybrid clouds and Mitaka is the 13th release from
the OpenStack project (http://openstack.org), which is the work of more
than 2500 contributors from around the world.

See Red Hat Stack
for a brief overview of what's new in Mitaka.
The RDO community project (https://www.rdoproject.org/) curates,
packages, builds, tests, and maintains a complete OpenStack component
set for RHEL and CentOS Linux and is a founding member of the CentOS
Cloud Infrastructure SIG
(https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Cloud). The Cloud
Infrastructure SIG focuses on delivering a great user experience for
CentOS Linux users looking to build and maintain their own on-premise,
public or hybrid clouds.
All work on RDO, and on the downstream release, Red Hat OpenStack
Platform, is 100% open source, with all code changes going upstream first.
For a complete list of what's in RDO, see the RDO projects yaml file
There are three ways to get started with RDO.
To spin up a proof of concept cloud, quickly, and on limited hardware,
try the RDO QuickStart (http://rdoproject.org/Quickstart) You can run
RDO on a single node to get a feel for how it works.
For a production deployment of RDO, use the TripleO Quickstart
(https://www.rdoproject.org/tripleo/) and you'll be running a production
cloud in short order.
Finally, if you want to try out OpenStack, but don't have the time or
hardware to run it yourself, visit TryStack (http://trystack.org/),
where you can use a free public OpenStack instance, running RDO
packages, to experiment with the OpenStack management interface and API,
launch instances, configure networks, and generally familiarize yourself
The RDO Project participates in a Q&A service at
http://ask.openstack.org, for more developer oriented content we
recommend joining the rdo-list mailing list
(https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/rdo-list). Remember to post a
brief introduction about yourself and your RDO story. You can also find
extensive documentation on the RDO docs site
We also welcome comments and requests on the CentOS Mailing lists
(https://lists.centos.org/) and the CentOS IRC Channels ( #centos on
irc.freenode.net ), however we have a more focused audience in the RDO
To get involved in the OpenStack RPM packaging effort, see the RDO
community pages (https://www.rdoproject.org/community/) and the CentOS
