OpenStack via DevStack
This page is describing how to quickly deploy an OpenStack by using the development tool DevStack on a single machine. Xen via libvirt is going to be used.
This how-to describes the steps took on an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Little changes should be required to do the same on the other distribution supported by devstack.
We are going to install Xen then setup devstack.
- Install Xen
sudo apt-get install xen-hypervisor-4.4-amd64 sudo reboot
- Get devstack
git clone https://git.openstack.org/openstack-dev/devstack
- Configure devstack
Edit local.conf in the devstack working repository. (For more options, take a look at DevStack Configuration.)

- Run devstack
This might take a while.
