I am trying to setup a private cloud which will be running production systesm using openstack icehouse latest release with CentOS 6.5. Can anyone please provide a great start to finish guide for deploying a production grade private cloud with icehouse?

blog? link? documentation(not the pretty un-useful ones that need a PhD to comprehend)

You should read and understand the official OpenStack documentation and the Operations Guide. If you find those documents too hard to understand you can post specific questions here. I'm now closing this question as it's too generic.

This is just 3 step for a complete openstack setup, link: quick RDO Packstack

However I recommend you to have some in-depth knowledge for setting up a openstack cloud, so you can handle if any issues arises along the installation & configuration, then you should refer: to this link

@Shankar Ganesh P J RDO only is for test purposes only..also it uses pretty much a single server to install all services. I mentioned production grade private cloud

Nope, you can have multi-node setup with packstack. In-fact we are having 61 compute nodes to run private cloud at my organization. As described by you: 2xHP S6500 with 8xSL390s G7 servers..that is 16 servers in 8U.

Just read through RDO, it is not a test tool. You can either go through detailed documentation or get Openstack contractors support for complete installation of private cloud.

@Shankar Ganesh P J Wait what is packstack? You mentioned RDO( )which is just a way to test openstack in one system with all services installed.I am asking how to deploy a production..again production grade private..again private cloud What exactly is packstack?
