I'd like to get a test cloud up and running in preparation for a possible deployment of 12.04. I messed with the UEC a bit, but have had a much harder time finding anything helpful as a primer for the new stack. There is generic documentation on Diablo, but there are likely to be a lot of pieces already handy in Ubuntu that a specific guide could save time with.

Also, as much as I would love to, my budget doesn't include the $4-6k to get a small cluster running with the Canonical support.

Ken Pepple has a book on deploying OpenStack: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920021674.do

Ken's company (Internap) has the first commercial available OpenStack cloud compute service.


Internap's cloud is built on the Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) as the hypervisor.

Deploying RDO is a quick and easy process. Setting up an OpenStack cloud takes approximately 15 minutes, and can be as short as 3 steps. http://openstack.redhat.com/Quickstart
