Devstack: alternate solution to running again on Reboot

I have experienced that when you install Openstack via devstack, the installation does not survive machine reboot. You have to run again, which effectively means to install Openstack all over again which is not a very good option. Everything (instances, networks etc.) created will be wiped out and you again start from scratch.

Is there any workaround for this so that Openstack installation survives machine reboot and everything (topologies etc.) remain there?

rejoin-stack is currently far from perfect (as others have noted) - I've found it mostly works with handholding on Ubuntu 14.04 and doesn't work well at all on Fedora 20. Services don't get restarted, networking is slightly to badly misconfigured, etc.

I use to start openstack by having ./ in .profile file. So whenever OS boots it start openstack services and will do unstack before shutdown.

I sort of thought the ideas was that DevStack wouldn't survive reboot since it wasn't meant to be used in production.
