I have been assigned to install openstack on a single machine in our dev office.
I am following the guide here : http://docs.openstack.org/kilo/install-guide/install/apt/content/ch_basic_environment.html
My goal is to install 3 nodes : a controller, a compute and a network (as described in the guide).
What I do not understand, is how I should set up my environment to try to install my nodes.
Note : host and VMs are all ubuntus, and I use Oracle's virtualbox.
I am currently installing 3 VMs on 1 VM, to simulate 3 servers, but I feel like it's not the good solution (let the compute power problem aside for now).
That's something the doc isn't clear about : should I install everything in one single VM ? Am I on the good road ?
Any advice on how to proceed with my environment (1 VM? Multiple VMs ? Multiple VMs in 1 VM to isolate from the host system ? No VMs ?) would be much appreciated as I feel a bit lost in the docs, and I have only 4 months of experience (and I'm a dev, not a sysadmin :s)
Many thanks for considering my request.
