It has now been updated to work with the latest OpenStack builds, using tools and processes based on their collective and vast OpenStack experience. OpenStack Open Source Cloud software is one of the most used cloud infrastructures to support a wide variety of use cases, from software development to big data analysis. It is developed by a thriving community of individual developers from around the globe and backed by most of the leading players in the cloud space today. We make it simple to implement, massively scalable, and able to store a large pool of data and networking resources. OpenStack has a strong ecosystem that helps you provision your cloud storage needs. Add OpenStack's enterprise features to reduce the cost of your business.This book will begin by showing you the steps to build up an OpenStack private cloud environment using Ansible. You'll then discover the uses of cloud services such as the identity service, image service, and compute service. You'll dive into Neutron, the OpenStack Networking service, and get your hands dirty with configuring networks, routers, load balancers, and more. You'll then gather more expert knowledge on OpenStack cloud computing by managing your cloud's security and migration. After that, we delve into OpenStack Object storage and you'll see how to manage servers and work with objects, cluster, and storage functionalities. Finally, you will learn about OpenStack dashboard, Ansible, Keystone, and other interesting topics.What you will learnUnderstand, install, configure, and manage a complete OpenStack Cloud platform using OpenStack-AnsibleConfigure networks, routers, load balancers, and more with NeutronUse Keystone to setup domains, roles, groups and user accessLearn how to use Swift and setup container access control listsGain hands-on experience and familiarity with Horizon, the OpenStack Dashboard user interfaceAutomate complete solutions with our recipes on Heat, the OpenStack Orchestration service as well as using Ansible to orchestrate application workloadsFollow practical advice and examples to run OpenStack in productionWho This Book Is ForThis book is written for cloud system engineers, system administrators, and technical architects who are moving from a virtualized environment to cloud environments.
