I'm proud to announce an Ansible Playbook to deploy OpenStack on Ubuntu!
Check it out!
Powered by Sandvine! ;-)
Basically, this is the automation of what we have documented here:
1- Install Ubuntu 14.04, fully upgraded (with
"linux-generic-lts-vivid" installed), plus "/etc/hostname" and
"/etc/hosts" configured according.
2- Deploy OpenStack with 1 command:
* Open vSwtich (default):
bash <(curl -s
* Linux Bridges (alternative):
bash <(curl -s
3- Launch a NFV L2 Stack:
heat stack-create demo -f
Only runs the "step 2" on top of a fresh installed Ubuntu 14.04! Can
be a Server or Desktop but, fresh installed. Do not pre-install MySQL,
RabbitMQ, Keystone, etc... Let Ansible to its magic!
Also, make sure you can use "sudo" without password.
Some features of our Ansible Playbook:
1- Deploys OpenStack with one single command, in one physical box
(all-in-one), helper script (./os-deploy.sh) available;
2- Supports NFV instances that can act as a L2 Bridge between two
3- Plenty of Heat Templates;
4- 100% Ubuntu based;
5- Very simple setup (simpler topology; dummy interfaces for both
"br-ex" and "vxlan"; no containers for each service (yet));
6- Ubuntu PPA available, with a few OpenStack patches backported from
Liberty, to Kilo (to add "port_security_enabled" Heat support);
7- Only requires one physical ethernet card;
8- Both "Linux Bridges" and "Open vSwitch" deployments are supported;
9- Planning to add DPDK support;
10- Multi-node support under development;
11- IPv6 support comming...
* Notes about Vagrant support:
Under development (it doesn't work yet).
There is a preliminary Vagrant support (there is still a bug on MySQL
startup, pull requests are welcome).
Just "git clone" our Ansible playbooks and run "vagrant up" (or
./os-deploy-vagrant.sh to auto-config your Ansible vars / files for
We tried it only with Mac / VirtualBox but, it does not support
VT-in-VT (nested virtualization), so, we're looking for KVM / Libvirt
on Ubuntu Desktop instead. But it would be nice to, at least, launch
OpenStack in a VirtualBox on you Mac... =)
Hope you guys enjoy it!
