2018-06-24 19:17:29 -0500 asked a question What is the best way to start a new deployment?

We're trying to develop a proof-of-concept OpenStack deployment using some existing hardware (mostly a dozen or so Dell R710s) but haven't been able to settle on a deployment strategy. I've done a previous RDO experiment before (using packstack) and assumed we'd go with an RDO-based Triple-O deployment here; but the student doing the bulk of the work found it very complex and couldn't get it to work. After that we looked at Mirantis (who apparently only does managed cloud these days) and then the community Fuel distribution; but apparently Fuel is deprecated / unmaintained now? The latest thing we're looking at is Kolla and Kolla-ansible; but I wanted to get some thoughts from the community about the best way to deploy a (relatively) simple, production-like OpenStack cloud today. Is it one of these tools? Something else?

Thanks for any thoughts, experiences, or guidance.
