This is a community to learn more about how OpenStack can be used with VMware technologies including vSphere, NSX, VMware vSAN, etc.
For a basic overview of the solution, see the 5 minute demonstration below of the vSphere OpenStack Virtual Appliance (VOVA) below. VOVA is an appliance that was built to simplify OpenStack deployment into a VMware vSphere environment for test, proof-of-concept and education purposes. VOVA runs all of the required OpenStack services (Nova, Glance, Cinder, Neutron, Keystone, and Horizon) in a single Ubuntu Linux appliance.
To get hands-on with OpenStack + vSphere:
- Go to the Hands-On-Lab to get a guided tour: OpenStack + VMware HOL
- To install the VOVA appliance into your own vSphere environment, start by reading the VOVA Manual
If you have questions about OpenStack + VMware, ask a question in the discussions section.
