I finished the first four chapters. When I have some time I may install Ubuntu, but right now I have a fully functional Red Hat 6 installation that allowed me to complete all exercises.

What I really like about the book so far is the way it is laid out. The first section was an overview, then there were exercises that gave me a chance to play around and gain insight into the inner workings. The fourth chapter then dove into an explanation tying all the components together and answering a bunch of questions I had.

I eagerly await the next chapters. I like the idea of both; installing openstack manually, and understanding how to justify the concept at a business level.

I also appreciate the help Cody gave me in the early chapters to get me started.

If anyone is browsing this forum who; has an interest in openstack and is trying to decide if the should get this book, stop wondering and buy it.

Wow! Thanks for the review!

We are working on new content while revising the first part of the book. I appreciate your questions, they have been very helpful in shaping the book.
