I want to install open stack on centos 6 but the documentation and most of the tutorials go on with Ubuntu. I want to know if there are any particular advantages of installing open stack on Ubuntu? Is there any suitable benchmarking tool available so that I can measure the performance of open stack on both Ubuntu and centos? Any advice if I decide to go with Centos?
I have been testing it on centos6 first tried the openstack repository then the griddynamics repository. Both seem to be working make sure you install yum priorities and set them on the repositories.
I dont think you will see much difference in the benchmarking. Just choose the distro you are most familiar with.
