Yes, those are the appropriate modules.

It can appear a bit daunting at first, but if you pick off small bites 
and work in an iterative fashion, I have no doubts you'll be well on 
your way in no time.

The first steps are, as they are with OpenStack in general, in building 
out the supporting components (e.g. database and message broker), so I 
would start by taking a look at the (excellent) MySQL[0] and RabbitMQ[1] 
modules from the Puppet Forge. Take your time and build out the roles 
and profiles[2] that control these components, make sure you're happy 
with the results and then gradually expand.
