Hi I am going to install OpenStack all in one in a single node.In my PC only one NIC available. I want to buy an external NIC card. But in OpenStack website the requirement of NIC is 1GB NIC card. The 1GB NIC card is costly. Can i use any other NIC card? Any suggestion to buy an External NIC card

Any old NIC will be ok for test purposes.

As darragh-oreilly already mentioned: For test purposes any NIC will do. But do not expect fast responses. In Germany an external NIC (USB -> NIC) is about 20 €. Internal NICs one can get for about 10 €, depending on your requirements.

Do you really need two phyiscal NICs, or would be an VIP also possible for your purposes? Ask Dr. Google how to set this up on your linux. ;-)
