In this lab, you will first discover the OpenStack ecosystem

and then we will practice creating a new OpenStack project included virtual network objects such as router, private network, floating IPs and security groups.

On this virtual network, we will launch new virtual machine instances from already installed image and also from newly created image.

We will practice creating volumes, and attaching a Cinder block storage volume using the Horizon dashboard. Finally we will create a cloud-int script to automate the launching of a LAMP server.
