I have an idea for a product that would utilize an Ubuntu Private Cloud that would take advantage of both JuJu and the OpenStack APIs. The problem is, while I know quite a bit about server administration at the bare-bone level, I don't know much about building and running a cloud. Where are some good resources about this -- from setup/configuration to hardware requirements?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

In terms of general OpenStack resources, the OpenStack Docs are a great reference for installing, configuring and operating an OpenStack Cloud.

The Juju Charm Store as charms for deploying OpenStack - the OpenStack HA reference architecture has some details of how to use these for a full scale, HA deployment, but they can also be used for smaller Juju/MAAS managed deployments.

You can find out more about Juju and MAAS at their respective websites.

#ubuntu-server and #juju on Freenode IRC are good places to ask questions about use of the charms - #openstack for more general OpenStack questions.
