I'm curious as to how easy it is to get OpenStack to install and configure for a small testing environment?

OpenStack does well integrating third party products and legacy systems and can be easily adopted into your infrastructure. You can install it on your Linux system and configure it for a small testing environment in a way that is fairly straightforward.

Installing OpenStack on Linux tends to be better because it is safe to install and remove and to test. You will need a minimum of 6GB of storage and 1.5GB of RAM for it to work. First, you need to install DevStack on your computer. Create a username of “stack” to install it, give it full sudo privileges and log out and log back in. Get OpenStack from Github and run git.

Create /var/devstack/localrc.localrc that will go in the DevStock root for configuration. This is just a base configuration but it will work when you want to begin testing.
