Which server do I use as which component in a Tripleo environment

I am currently trying to set up an OpenStack environment using the HP Helion community edtion. When I was reading about the minimum requirements, I've tried to build a setup which came as close to these requirements as I could get with the material that was given to me. Now I am wondering which role I am going to assign to which server in the deployment. I was also wondering which specs are most important when making this decision.

Here is the list of servers I have used and their specs:

  • HP Proliant DL360p G8 - 2 cpu's (8 cores) - 300Gb hard drive - 32 Gb RAM
  • HP Proliant DL360p G8 - 1 cpu (4 cores) - 600Gb hard drive - 32 Gb RAM (2 servers with the exact same specs)
  • HP Proliant DL360 G7 - 2 cpu's (6 cores) - 292 Gb hard drive - 36 Gb RAM
  • HP Proliant DL360 G7 - 1 cpu (4 cores) - 292 Gb hard drive -24 Gb RAM (2 servers with the exact same specs)
  • HP Proliant DL 360 G7 - 1 cpu (4 cores) - 292 Gb hard drive - 20 Gb RAM
  • HP Proliant DL380 G5 - 2cpu's - 144 Gb hard drive - 22 Gb RAM

The only thing I am sure of at this time, is that I am going to use the last server as the seed server.
