OpenStack: Packaged by the RDO Community for the Enterprise Linux communities
There's a few different ways to get started.
To spin up a proof of concept cloud on a single node, try an all in one installation with the QuickStart.
If you want to create a production-ready cloud, you'll want to use the TripleO quickstart guide.
And if you want to try out OpenStack without installing anything, you want TryStack - a free public OpenStack instance.
What is RDO?
RDO is a community of people using and deploying OpenStack on CentOS, Fedora, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. We have documentation to help get started, mailing lists where you can connect with other users, and community-supported packages of the most up-to-date OpenStack releases available for download.
If you are looking for enterprise-level support, or information on partner certification, Red Hat also offers Red Hat OpenStack Platform.
OpenStack relies on the underlying operating system and hypervisor — and what better operating system to build on than the industry's leading enterprise operating system? The RDO community is your one-stop community site for all things related to using OpenStack on Red Hat based platforms.
Want to update this documentation? Great! All you need is a GitHub account, then visit the link at the very middle bottom of each page, entitled "Edit this page on GitHub"
There are many ways to get involved with the RDO community once you get started. The simplest way is to head over to the ask.openstack.org forum and help answer questions. Or try out OpenStack for yourself right now at TryStack.org.
For a commercially-supported enterprise ready OpenStack solution, Red Hat provides Red Hat OpenStack Platform, an enterprise-class cloud platform based on OpenStack.
