2018-06-24 19:23:08 -0600 asked a question How to deploy bare metal OpenStack in 2018 - MAAS, Kolla + Ironic, Fuel or The Foreman?

After trying to deploy my own OpenStack Cloud for more than a week now, I am still not sure which route I should go. I am planning to run the cloud on my home lab (5 servers). I would like to have:

  • Automatic provisioning of new hosts (i.e. I plug in a server into my network, set it to PXEBoot and OpenStack gets deployed)
  • Some level of "upgradeability" (to the next OpenStack version)

I have already tried MAAS using KVMs and it sort of worked, but when I tried to deploy OpenStack using Juju it would be way to fragile. Another way of deploying OpenStack that I am currently trying to setup is Kolla + Ironic; basically deploying OpenStack using Kolla and then deploying another OpenStack using Ironic to bare metal/KVMs set to PXEBoot. Could this even work? Should I use Fuel instead?
