Part 1. Getting started

The first part of this book is an introduction to the OpenStack framework: how and why you’ll want to use it. OpenStack components are decomposed, and relationships to underlying resources (compute, storage, network, and so on) are explained. You’ll deploy OpenStack on a single node using the DevStack deployment tool. Along the way, this part will help you start thinking about how OpenStack could be used in your environment and develop your interest in the framework enough to gain a deeper understanding of how things work under the covers.
