Single Node OpenStack Deployment

Latest response

I want to test OpenStack in a single server. So I am planning to deploy packstack distribution of openstack. In such case can I deploy some instances as well in the same server.
Basically can I use same server as controller as well as compute.
If so should I install Openstack packstack in bare metal server or as a VM?


Hi. You can install it on the bare metal. If you want to test OpenStack in a VM, check the DevStack.

Thanks Zdenek. Honestly my concern is I only have one physical server. I am trying to experience Openstack as much as possible with available resources.
