Is there any way to install open stack cloud platform without building software from its source code, dev stack, fuel, rdo and from operating system package manger's (apt, yum) repository.

I am looking for managing openstack infrastructure in ubuntu/centos os platform without the help of os vendor software packages. For example, The most popular bigdata hadoop framework is available as a binary format where can download it from apache project repo or other distributor's repo like cloudera repo link. Here, we can manage the binary software in any custom path in our system. If we wish to uninstall the software or managing multiple versions of the same software in the same node is possible with minimal effort.

If we install the software via os vendors package management repo, they install the software in their own default path based on the OS distribution and managing multiple version of the services in a single ecosystem is difficult and requires more effort to make it possible. Hope you understand my question. I don't know exactly where openstack maintains a pre compiled binaries for its core projects. If so please share the repo link.

Best Regards,

Radhakrishnan Rk

You can use pip to install python-packages but will miss a lot of dependencies to make it work outside devstack

It is difficult to figure out all packages for all services from pypi site.

No, I wanted to ensure the availability of this option. I am a hadoop administrator, I use parcel installation for my cluster deployment which helps me to ease the cluster installation process and I can manage software neither by package manager nor downloading the binary manually.
