OpenStack via DevStack
This page is describing how to quickly deploy an OpenStack by using the development tool DevStack on a single machine. Xen Project 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 the Xen Project Hypervisor then setup devstack.
- Install the Xen Project software:
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.
- That's it! You are done!
