Title: Working with Windows Images in OpenStack
Linux isn’t the only operating system in the cloud: users want Windows too! However, how exactly do you prepare a Windows image for OpenStack? Is it possible to use cloud-init or some similar automation mechanism to customize my instance deployment? We will answer these questions and others and provide concrete examples regarding how to successfully provide reliable Windows images to your users.
