Build your own private cloud environment! In this workshop, you'll be setting up your own private cloud using OpenStack Fuel. Packet.net is providing the server hardware for this workshop (but you'll need to sign up for a server, see below). You'll still need a laptop to access your assigned server. On this private cloud you'll be able to launch virtual machines, setup virtual networks, and all the other cloud functions.
What is Fuel?
Fuel is an open source deployment and management tool for OpenStack. Developed as an OpenStack community effort, it provides an intuitive, GUI-driven experience for deployment and management of OpenStack, related community projects and plug-ins.
For this workshop, you'll be using physical servers provided by Packet. Specifically, you'll be using one of their 'Type 1' servers, a 32 GB, 120GB x 2 SSD (RAID-1), 4 core Xeon server. Packet provides their servers by the hour. With code SDOPENSTACK, you'll get $25 of free credit. The 'Type 1' is $0.40/hour so the $25 credit will get you 62 hours of CPU use. Be sure to shut down the server at the end of the workshop!
Sign up at www.packet.net and use code SDOPENSTACK. You'll need to provide a credit card or PayPal account to get the $25 in free credit.
