I recently picked up a copy of the OpenStack Cloud Computing Cookbook and must say that as a new user to OpenStack, I feel I have the ability now to get my feet wet with this software and deploy to a cloud of my own (as I did). When reading the book, it shows that the software version is Essex. After reading this book I was able to get a could up and running quickly, and efficiently. This book goes over all key parts and components associated with OpenStack including Nova, Swift, Keystone, Glance, and Horizon. These topics are all covered in their own chapter. Because of OpenStack’s ties with Ubuntu, you will see such topics as Juju and MASS mentioned here as well. Both great tools to run with OpenStack. Because of this book I now have been able to get my technology under control because of this book and can “rock this new cloud thing with ease”. I will be recommending this book to everyone I know interested in OpenStack from now on.
