HI All, I have a query for Glance Image Service. Using Glance, can I load only VM OS Images or can I also load application Images?.

For E.g. if I have an Ubuntu VM running, and I want to load an application 'X' will I be able to store my application Image X in Glance and Can I load it from there everytime I need?

Regards Venkata

Hi Venkata,

There are a few ways to achieve what you are asking for:

  1. Use Openstack HEAT orchestration - for this you need to write your HEAT templates to carryout the application installation and any other steps. Then you can use this template for automated repeatable deployments.

  2. Mirantis had developed a project with community called Murano - which provides what you are asking for really, although I have never tried that myself. Refer to

  3. If installing your application on an instance and taking a snapshot of this installation to be used for your future deployment works [basically depends on whether your application will work this way], then this can be one more option.

Hi Thanks a Lot. We are using the Option 3 now
