Hello everyone,

I was looking at a couple of documents including the newly updated official documentation as well at this helpful website and wanted to find out whether it would be possible to have a single-node install of Havana for testing purposes (Ubuntu 12.04 or Debian 7).

I had a working deployment of Folsom working on a single node, but it included some very patchy fixes such as creating a dummy network interface which I would prefer to avoid with Havana, as I wish to actually use Neutron effectively.

Is a single-node install possible? If so, could anyone provide a guide?

A single-node install is exactly what you get if you use devstack, which is designed for exactly your situation: deploying OpenStack for development and testing.

Does devstack offer the same computational capabilities as OpenStack? That is, does it use the exact same services and resources in its environment?

"devstack" is "A documented shell script to build complete OpenStack development environments." It just installs OpenStack. So I guess the answer to your question is "yes", because it installs OpenStack.

Thank you very much. Since it is exactly what I need, I have accepted this as an answer.
