OpenStack Project Part 1

For my senior project at the university I attend, I’m setting up an OpenStack cluster. I’m using two physical servers, both of them are IBM System x3650 servers.

Here is a picture of the servers I’m using:


So far I’ve only hooked up power cables and ethernet, and I also installed Ubuntu Server 16.04.1 on them. I decided to use Ubuntu Server, because OpenStack’s documentation mentioned that Ubuntu has a a little better support than other Linux distros. I also have SSH servers running on both of them, so I can remotely access them. My next step will be to start installing OpenStack, but I’ll save that for the next post.
