“Maas, Juju, Landscape and Openstack Cloud with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Server Edition”


The best way to build an Iaas infrastructure, for our lab with Ubuntu, it’s using as platform the following suite of elements:

  • OpenStack;
  • Landscape;
  • Maas;
  • Juju,;

Now let’s see how to install this entire environment on our lab. But before to proceed with that it’s a good starting point knowing something about this new project:



In this new talk we’ll show you how install all the elements on our virtual nodes with all their components. The lab where we’ll build that is based on an IBM System x3650 M4 as physical host, with VMware ESX as Hypervisor and it’ll be composed by the following requirements:

A minimum of 7 machines with these roles:

  • 1 vm for the Maas server (HDD=150GB, 8GB RAM);
  • 1 vm for the Juju controller (HDD=100GB, 8GB RAM);
  • 1 vm for the Landscape Autopilot (HDD=100GB, 8GB RAM);
  • 4 vm for the Openstack Cloud with (HDD=400GB x 2, 16GB RAM, CPU=2Core):
    • At least one must have 2 NICs;
    • At least 3 must have 2 disks;
