Multi node installation on Openstack

Greetings,

I was assigned the task of deploying a multi node installation of OpenStack, using the maximum number of three independent physical machines at my disposal. The proposed platform is Ubuntu 16.04. The basic purpose of this proposed cloud deployment is to work as a VM repository, providing VM's as a working environment for some courses students participate in, as part of the academic services that the university provides.

So my two questions for this matter is as follows:

1) Can anyone suggest a well documented guide (I need this cause im new to OpenStack) for multi node deployment in Ubuntu Linux that is up to date with the latest OpenStack distributions and technologies.

2) I noticed that there is already a guide for Ubuntu here http://docs.openstack.org/liberty/install-guide-ubuntu/index.html. Can anyone tell me if the deployed architecture described inside the guide is eligible to fulfill the needs of the system described above?

Thank you for your time in advance!!

---EDIT----

Because I wasn't specific about the hardware requirements or the purpose of our system, I will try to cover those in the section below.

So, the idea we have in mind is to deploy an IaaS system similar to something like this https://okeanos.grnet.gr/home/, where MSc students can login as part of a tenant group and create Vitrual Machines on demand which can used as a working environment for their projects.

The proposed idea is to use the machine as follows:

  • 1 machine as the Compute node
  • 1 machine as the Storage node. This means image storage + volume for the instances (e.g. cinder).
  • The rest of the services required will be deployed on the last machine that will be designated as the Controller node.

The hardware specifications of the three machine are thought to be similar to the example architecture suggested in the original newton installation guide: https://docs.openstack.org/newton/install-guide-ubuntu/overview.html.

I hope all the aforementioned information will shed some light to the grey areas :)

And last but not least, this task must be completed in the next 4 months.
