It gives you the software, control panels, and APIs required to orchestrate a cloud, including running instances, managing networks, and controlling access through users and projects. OpenStack Compute strives to be both hardware and hypervisor agnostic, currently supporting a variety of standard hardware configurations and seven major hypervisors. This package contains scripts, config and dependencies shared between all the OpenStack nova services.
