OpenStack is an open source platform for building public and private clouds. In this presentation, we discuss Kickstack. Kickstack is a pure-Puppet rapid deployment system for OpenStack. It uses Puppet modules hosted at StackForge that are also available through the Puppet Forge. Using a simple scheme of “node roles” expressed as classes in a Puppet module, you can use Kickstack to easily run, deploy and configure OpenStack using nothing but a Puppet manifest, an External Node Classifier (ENC), or both.

The primary audience for this tutorial is anyone from sysadmins, students to researchers. Who want to deploy OpenStack in an automated way. Which is far less complex than manually deploying various components of OpenStack. From this tutorial people will learn how to deploy various components of OpenStack using Kickstack. They can have a small OpenStack cloud up and running in 30 mins using Kickstack.

This tutorial will help people understanding that deploying OpenStack is not as difficult as it appears. This will help them in deploying OpenStack in an automated fashion and this will also help them in making an informed decision about adopting OpenStack for their production workloads.
