Hi All,

I have one basic question. To manage KVM using OpenStack do we need to install nova component in KVM also ? To manage vmware ESX do we need to install nova component in ESX box also ?

Hi somenathpal,

openstack architecture Check Fig, 1.2 Minimal architecture example We have

  • controller node
  • compute node
  • Networking node

The compute node runs the hypervisor, by default its KVM. To answer your question, yes the compute node (node with kvm or exsi hypervisor) uses nova components (nova-compute, nova-conductor. etc.)
