I have a small network of computers, I am migrating from Arch Linux to Ubuntu's OpenStack Platform for usability reasons. The reason I am asking is because of the following:
Installing Ubuntu OpenStack requires at least seven machines with two disks, two of which have two network interfaces (NICs). Install Ubuntu Server on one of the machines with two interfaces.
I have two systems, one of which I can and hopefully will host six virtual machines and will form the cluster, and the other I am planning to be the cluster controller.
I am having numerous issues meeting the prerequisites of using the ubuntu openstack platform, namely:
Network Configuration and Setup
Actually, I don't know anything about OpenStack.
Could someone give me a walkthrough on how to meet the requirements of this situation with the following resources:
Computer 1 - The (Hopefully it works) Virtualised Cluster
Intel Core i7 - 3770K.
16GB of physical memory, 8GB virtual (swap).
6+ KVM Virtual Machines (Presumably using all available resources).
Ubuntu Server as VM Host.
Now is the controller.
Computer 2 - OpenStack Controller
4GB RAM and Swap
A new-ish Intel Pentium (The one a bit better than a late Core 2 Duo)
I can't really afford any more systems as I am on a High School student's income, is there a way to make this work? I am not deleting my Arch partition until I know for sure. I am really limited by my systems and the documentation for the networking setup seems oddly scarce. Is anyone able to assist me on installation? Also, I don't know how to configure libvirt to allow me to network like this, will I need to host DHCP on one of my 'servers' or can I still rely on my good little Netgear router (DGND4000).
