OpenStack Operations Guide
Set Up and Manage Your OpenStack Cloud
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: April 2014
Pages: 330

Design, deploy, and maintain your own private or public Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), using the open source OpenStack platform. In this practical guide, experienced developers and OpenStack contributors show you how to build clouds based on reference architectures, as well as how to perform daily administration tasks.

Designed for horizontal scalability, OpenStack lets you build a cloud by integrating several technologies. This approach provides flexibility, but knowing which options to use can be bewildering. Once you complete this book, you’ll know the right questions to ask while you organize compute, storage, and networking resources. If you already know how to manage multiple Ubuntu machines and maintain MySQL, you’re ready to:

  • Set up automated deployment and configuration
  • Design a single-node cloud controller
  • Use metrics to improve scalability
  • Explore compute nodes, network design, and storage
  • Install OpenStack packages
  • Use an example architecture to help simplify decision-making
  • Build a working environment to explore an IaaS cloud
  • Manage users, projects, and quotas
  • Tackle maintenance, debugging, and network troubleshooting
  • Monitor, log, backup, and restore

    Comments about oreilly OpenStack Operations Guide:

    I had a chance to get a copy of this book directly from it is a great book. It does not show you how to install OpenStack but it shows you how to administer your environment, it teaches you how to make good architectural decisions before you implement your OpenStack infrastructure.

    I am a better OpenStack engineer after reading this book, you can find most of the tips on other sites and blogs but it is good to have it all on one book that you can keep by your desk.

    I recommend installing openstack using the ubuntu havana guide on and go through the pain of setting it up on a virtual machine you will get to learn how all the components work and debug them. Once all is up and running use this book and from there start planning your future OpenStack cloud.
