Anything created with DevStack should NOT be considered a private cloud. It should not be considered anything except a development or transient test environment. Are you aware that your 'private cloud' will not survive a reboot? Are you aware that it will destroy your app instance if you re-run stack.sh?

As long as you are just testing stuff and are aware that DevStack is not suitable for anything beyond that it should work. You should be able to use Heat as installed for additional exploration as larsks mentions.

And when you are ready for something more durable, there are a number of packaged OpenStack distros to choose from, many people go with something based on the Linux distro they are familiar with. Fedora, Ubuntu, RHEL/CentOS, Debian all have packages and things like Fuel and RDO and PackStack are complete installers.
