Image resources

Download pre-built images for OpenStack

You can run a number of different Linux distributions and operating systems on top of your RDO cloud. This is a collection of various OpenStack-ready images that you can use:

Import images into Glance

You can load an image from the command line with Glance. For example:

$ curl -O https://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/24/CloudImages/x86_64/images/Fedora-Cloud-Base-24-1.2.x86_64.qcow2

$ glance --os-image-api-version 2 image-create --name 'Fedora-24-x86_64' --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --file Fedora-Cloud-Base-24-1.2.x86_64.qcow2

Alternatively, go to the Images tab in your OpenStack dashboard to add images via the GUI.

See the OpenStack documentation for more details about the Glance command-line tools.

Build your own images

The resulting image file can be imported into Glance similarly to any other image:

$ glance image-create --name Fedora-24-x86_64 --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --is-public True < fedora-image.qcow2
