Hello there.

Is there a way to allow users to subscribe and register to a openstack cloud like aws has?

In general the way you want to enroll users is specific to the business, rather than something that is generic to the technology, so historically that hasn't been part of OpenStack.

Many private clouds use Keystone in a configuration where it is backed by an existing IdM provider (e.g. LDAP or ActiveDirectory); in this case the users are already enrolled and you just need to assign them roles on projects.

More recently, the Adjutant project (which is an official OpenStack project) has been created to provide an API for business-specific tasks like enrolling users. It allows you to implement custom workflows that are specific to your business process. You might want to look into this.

There are a number of public clouds that are based on OpenStack, such as Rackspace (one of the founders!) or Hetzner (not sure). The OpenStack Foundation has a list.

Hi there. Thanks. What I meant was how do I add a similar to my own openstack private cloud?

Sorry for misunderstanding your question. Such a feature is not built into the standard OpenStack software, as far as I know.
