In order to deploy on bare metal you might want to look into MAAS ( You can deploy MAAS on your ESXi server and commission as many VMs as you'll need (that's your base environment). After that, using Juju, you can then deploy OpenStack on top of MAAS (that's your openstack environment). And finally, on top of that you can use Juju yet again to deploy workloads.
