Just joined the community and this is my first post.

What's the best way to quickly install OpenStack using the hardware listed below? My objective is to provide the backend for our app with app VMs (includes Database and Objects), and a mail server VM. Google lists lots of options and I'm not sure which is the best for my setup. I have some experience installing other virtualization platforms and am a little familiar with Linux (I'm great at pasting commands in the CLI), but I'm not an IT/IS person.

Hardware (C6100 units). I have plenty of additional nodes to create HA after the initial install. Will add mirrored local OS drive after initial install):

1 pfsense box + 8 nodes. Nodes can be changed to follow best practices.

  1. 1X pfsense box (DHCP can be turned off)
  2. 1X Seed cloud host, 96 GB RAM, dual e5645 CPU, 1X 250GB SSD, NICs: 1X mgmt, 2X 1GbE, 2X 10GbE SFP
  3. 1X Under cloud controller, 96 GB RAM, dual e5645 CPU, 1X 250GB SSDs, NICs: 1X mgmt, 2X 1GbE, 2X 10GbE SFP
  4. 1X Over cloud controller, 96 GB RAM, dual e5645 CPU, 1X 250GB SSDs, NICs: 1X mgmt, 2X 1GbE, 2X 10GbE SFP
  5. 2X Compute, 96 GB RAM, dual e5645 CPU, 1X 250GB SS, NICs: 1X mgmt, 2X 1GbE, 2X 10GbE SFP
  6. 1X Cinder, 96 GB RAM, dual e5645 CPU, 1X 250GB SSD, 5X 1TB SSDs, NICs: 1X mgmt, 2X 1GbE, 2X 40GbE QSFP
  7. 1X Swift, 96 GB RAM, dual e5645 CPU, 1X 250GB SSD, 21X 3TB SAS (Disk Shelf), NICs (# ports): 1X mgmt, 2X 1GbE, 2X 40GbE QSFP (Mezzanine), 2X LSI SAS9207 HBA

I appreciate your help in advance. Thanks!
