hastexo/kickstack — version 0.2.9 Jul 3rd 2019


Kickstack is now retired. It was originally conceived as a simplified method of deploying OpenStack with a higher-level Puppet abstraction than the then-available vendor deployment facilities provided. During the OpenStack Icehouse and Juno releases, all major OpenStack vendors released deployment facilities that render Kickstack obsolete, and that is a good thing.

Some alternatives that you may want to try (note: this list was written at the time of the OpenStack Juno release, and will not be updated):

  • Puppet based: Packstack/Quickstack (RDO), Staypuft (RHEL OSP), Fuel (Mirantis OpenStack)
  • Non Puppet based: Juju (Ubuntu), Crowbar (SUSE Cloud)

Kickstack: Kickstart your OpenStack

Kickstack is a pure-Puppet rapid deployment system for OpenStack. It uses Puppet modules hosted at StackForge that are also available through the Puppet Forge.

Kickstack adds a thin, pure-Puppet wrapper layer on top of these modules that enables you to deploy an OpenStack cloud in minutes.
