Can I install Openstack(nova especially) on sparc processor(Netra 440) using linux-to-sparc port?

P.S. Unfortunately there is no answer at answers.launchpad.net/nova.

I'm sure you can install it. Will it work? Maybe. :-)

The component you need to be looking at most closely is the hypervisor component. Which hypervisor do you plan to use, and does that work on sparc? That is a question that is completely outside of nova's realm. I would suggest exploring that in detail before worrying about the nova component on top of that.
