What is the OpenStack Cloud
Identify the purpose and history of OpenStack and the services that make up the Cloud Environment
Install OpenStack on CentOS 7
We look at methods used to install PackStack before running the customized install using PackStack on a CentOS 7 Linux System
Verify the Install and Services
Having installed OpenStack we can log into the Graphical Dashboard. Working from the command line we can test the database, Message Queue Server and start listing services and their status
Working with the Keystone Identity Service
In this module, we look at how we can list Keystone Identities. With this done and the install confirmed we can create our own new identities.
Working with Glance
Glance is the image server and is used to store and locate master images use to create instances or virtual machines. We will verify the operation of Glance and manage images.
Working with Nova
Nova is the compute engine for OpenStack and communicates between the hypervisor and the OpenStack. We can list Nova services and instances as well as looking at how we can create, stop and start Virtual Machine Instances
Networking in OpenStack with Neutron
Neutron has evolved from Nova-Networking and is now the defacto standard in Networking in OpenStack. We look in detail at creating Network, Subnets and Routers within the environment and connectivity with Address Pools
OpenStack Volumes with Cinder
The Cinder Service allows for the location and assignment of Volumes to Instances. We investigate how and why this works and using cinder to add block storage to your Virtual Machines
Orchestration with Heat
The OpenStack Heat project allows for the creation of templates to ease the burden of administration and formalize processes. We look at creating and using templates in Heat.
Understanding Swift Object Stores
Swift is the OpenStack Object Store. Objects are just lumps of data such as files or configuration that can be stored in OpenStack and located via Swift
A major element of the exam and your day to day work will be great troubleshooting skills. So we look at debug switches and using the logs in OpenStack along with Linux OS Skills that we can use.
