RDO – more play less work

While there is a lot to be said for the knowledge gained from a step by step manual installation of openstack, it’s not a journey for the faint of heart.
Bugs, outdated guides and errors have been par for course; inordinate time can be lost in futile pursuits with little long term gain other than preservation of the IT ego.
Enter RDO – a puppet based automated installation that reduces the time required for installing openstack, from best part of a day to ~ 15 minutes.
Despite for many years now preferring Debian based systems, I felt quite at ease with the simplicity of the RDO installation on Red Hat 6.4.
