I am new to Openstack and want to test my VNF onboarding. I need to test over KVM based hypervisor (What are the available hypervisor types)

What are the available and the easiest options to test onboarding my VNF into the Openstack, is there a public available hypervisor over which I can subscribe and test my image onboarding there?

And What is the base platform for the openstack public available servers?

So if my server running Ubuntu or Redhat, then I can use the KVM hpervisor to onboard my VNF over it, and then download the Openstack service?

How I can download the openstack, and what is its role/functions? Can I use it free without subscriptions? And is it only to manage the VM instances?

Thanks in Advance
