[Openstack] Deployment for production

We use packstack when we need an all-in-one environment such as people wanting to try out some new ideas (http://clouddocs.web.cern.ch/clouddocs/advanced_topics/installing_your_own_openstack.html).
Puppet gives us lots of additional abilities to customise parts of the cloud for different purposes such as compute optimised. Details are at http://openstack-in-production.blogspot.fr
Managing 220K cores with packstack would be adventurous.

so at CERN you are not using packstack. You are using RDO and done
your puppet work to deploy stuff right?
I found packstack very easy and handy to deploy stuff, why people hate
it? what could go wrong if we deploy using packstack?

This way is not recommended for a production. The packages provided itself are production ready, the way you have deployed them is not production ready.
