OpenStack User's Manual

Private Cloud Core - OpenStack User Manual

Welcome to the OpenStack User's Manual! This documentation is intended for users of an OpenStack cloud who do not have administrative access to their cloud. In this series of guides, you will learn the steps needed to create the building blocks needed for your cloud workload. Topics include understanding and creating a network within OpenStack, how to create instances, and how to create backups of data, to name a few. There are two primary ways to work in an OpenStack cloud: Through Horizon or the command line. Because of this, the guides are grouped into two categories.
