OpenStack quickstart via CentOS-based Vagrant environment

Project description

A little project to quickly set up all-in-one OpenStack using Vagrant


The Vagrantfile provided in this project will download and launch a CentOS 7 Vagrant Box, install RDO, and provide you an environment to follow along with in the original Getting Started With OpenStack video. These are the same (updated) materials used to present that session.


Your machine must meet a minimum set of requirements to successfully run an all-in-one OpenStack installation. At a minimum you need:

  1. A compatible hypervisor.
  • Linux: KVM, Virtual Box.
  • OS X: VMware Fusion, Virtual Box.
  • Windows: VMWare Workstation, Virtual Box.
  1. Vagrant to control your hypervisor, along with supported provider.
  2. At least 8 GB of RAM to support a 6 GB virtual machine.
  • 12 GB or more to support an 8 GB virtual machine is highly recommended.

Installing OpenStack

  1. Install Vagrant from:
  2. Download this repository: git clone
  3. Start the virtual machine and install OpenStack: $ cd getting-started-with-openstack; vagrant up
  4. Wait for the machine startup and installation to complete, it will take some time.

Pausing the Installation

To suspend your installation you can use: $ vagrant halt

To resume it:$ vagrant up


If you have trouble, please file a issue or pull request and we’ll help you out as quickly as possible.

If your vagrant environment fails for any reason, you can start off with a clean slate by destroying the VM: $vagrant destroy -f

Then beginning the process again with $vagrant up.
