I am trying to build a private cloud.

I was wondering what is the difference between

ubuntu openstack using maas to build the machines http://www.ubuntu.com/cloud/ubuntu-openstack

which have some heavy prerequisites.

And openstack kilo and it's previous versions https://www.openstack.org/software/kilo/

which have no explicit prerequisites.


I'm guessing that you're a little confused. Ubuntu's website simply describes how you can install OpenStack on it. (You could install OpenStack on some other flavor of Linux if you wanted to.)

OpenStack Kilo is like saying Windows 7. The "7" part tells you which version of Windows we're talking about. Kilo is a version of OpenStack.

Versions of OpenStack

I'm currently running OpenStack Icehouse since that's what you get if you're on Ubuntu 14.0.2LTS and you don't specifically change the default PPA when installing Juju and related charms.
