Hey Due to lack of resources (doing a POC of Openstack and only have 1 server for the job), is it possible to install the Nova compute node on the same machine as the controller ? and same goes for the Neutron. I've already installed the Keystone and Glance on this host. Swift will be installed on a separate server. Please advise

thanks michal

You can install all components on a single node. All services are (mostly) indepentant of eachother. You can have keystone, glance, nova-compute, swift, and cinder all on the same node, or all on seperate nodes.
