OpenStack Cloud Computing Cookbook, Second Edition – Updates

I live with first world problems: I’ve been too busy to blog because I’m too busy in work and busy co-authoring the new OpenStack Cloud Computing Cookbook that’s based on OpenStack Grizzly.

With the long tunnel beginning to shed some form of daylight, this second edition is on the final curve before the sprint.

To keep up to date, visit this website:

For the adventurous, we’ve been developing the supporting scripts for the book which can be found at To use this – ensure you have the following:

  • An x86 PC with at least 8Gb Ram
  • VirtualBox installed (4.2 branch)
  • Vagrant Installed (Currently tested with 1.1.5)
  • Git client installed


git clone
cd OpenStackCookbook
vagrant up

This gives you an OpenStack Grizzly release running on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Ubuntu Cloud Archive packages with Quantum. Spin it up and have a play!
