Hi Vishles,

As OpenStack have a very vibrant ecosystem, I also suggest to check the
alternative solutions from HP, Mirantis, Canonical, RedHat, Rackspace,
Cisco, etc.

If you just started to play with OpenStack, I suggest to use a clean OS
deployment to avoid any confusing situation caused by leftovers from a
previous installation. I also suggest to check the http://devstack.org
project, you can deploy a working pilot or demo of a vanilla OpenStack into
a VM if you don't like to ruin your existing setup. (but don't forget to
allocate enough memory and disk storage, and select QEMU as compute vm

Next to the mailing list, don't forget to visit ask.openstack.org for
further questions and answers.
