Dear All,

I have an open setup within my LAN right now. But I want to scale globally.

Is it possible to setup openstack across multiple datacenters and provide users for an option to create a VM in Florida, Spain or Singapore?

Yes you can setup. It all depends on the kind of design you would like to have ? You can put the compute in different dc and controller at one place HA mode.

Have a look at the availability zone and regions feature of OpenStack. These provide features such as you are looking for.

The different options mentioned at the link above require some thought process in the design. First an Availability Zone is the largest division of OpenStack resources, each AZ requires it's own set of controller or services nodes to run core OpenStack Services. The other techniques mentioned basically start dividing the AZ into cells, regions, or aggregates. Many people choose to have two independent AZ's so that workload can be run independently. Depending on your requirements you may go one way or another.
