Hi everyone,

I wanted to share this with the group in the hopes that we could get some feedback. We've built a set of Ansible playbooks to install & configure a "full" OpenStack deployment based on the Red Hat packaging on CentOS 6.

(Ansible is a configuration management and software deployment automation tool:

Here are the playbooks and some basic documentation:

I'm interested to know what folks think and if anyone finds this useful. I think it might be useful for quick deployments (you can go from a group of minimally installed CentOS boxes to OpenStack in 20-30 minutes), and I think this could serve as the basis for a more sophisticated production deployment mechanism.

We are also doing a howto webinar to present this, on July 11, 8AM Pacific Time (

Thanks for looking! Any feedback appreciated!
