I have a bunch of new hardware arriving over the next few weeks, both a SAN (EMC VNXe, NFS, iSCSI) and a pair of servers. As the load on our current systems is significant, and even my workstation can hardly run anything, I'm not in a position to test really any kind of load until these arrive on site.

End game is that at least those devices be self-contained. I guess my questions are:

What is a strategy for bootstrappong an OpenStack system onto these systems, such that: a) Except for the hypervisor/minimal OS on onboard SD cards, storage is on the SAN b) Which way to go NFS (+blobs) or iSCSI (target per VM) c) Which way to shuffle around VMs such that Openstack management stuff runs inside itself

If you haven't looked at OpenStack Operations Guide, I'd suggest to start from there.

Fair enough, and I've skimmed through it, but maybe my question is: "How can I run the various components on VMs, in a hand built VM infrastructure, and migrate those around such that the end is 'Openstack'"
