In the first part of this series, I introduced the kit that makes up my home lab. There’s nothing unusual or special in the kit list, but it certainly is affordable and makes entry into an OpenStack world very accessible.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Ken Hui will be joining John Griffith, OpenStack Program Technical Lead for the Cinder Project and Solutions Architect at SolidFire for a webinar Tuesday, April 29 at 11:00 a.m. CDT to talk about OpenStack Block Storage Design Considerations including an interactive panel discussion at the end.

Over the past year I’ve been using a home lab for quick, hands-on testing of OpenStack and Rackspace Private Cloud, and a number of people have requested information on the setup. Throughout the next few blog posts I will explain what I’ve got. This serves two purposes: 1) documentation of my own setup as well as 2) hopefully providing information that other people find useful – and not everything is about OpenStack.
What to know what goes into running an OpenStack powered private cloud? Well, you’re in luck. Last week, we hosted “Behind the Curtain: Operating an OpenStack Powered Private Cloud,” a webinar during which we dug into the components that allow Rackspace to offer and operate Rackspace Private Cloud Software in an as-a-Service model.

Last month, we launched an early access program for the latest version of Rackspace Private Cloud powered by the Havana release of OpenStack. The response has been great and we have incorporated your feedback into our Unlimited Availability launch, which is available today for free and supportable by our talented team of experts.
Businesses of all shapes and sizes leverage Rackspace Private Cloud (RPC) powered by OpenStack as a key component of their architecture. In a nutshell, RPC takes OpenStack code from trunk and configures it using our Chef recipes based on our experience and expertise in running large OpenStack-powered clouds.
The newest version of Rackspace Private Cloud software is available for Early Access now, and it’s based on the latest and greatest OpenStack release: Havana.
