From the book "OpenStack Cloud Computing Cookbook", I find that all the installation of the openstack is on VMs. I am wondering is it possible to install the openstack directly on physical servers without VMs?

Actually, by installing openstack on VMs, the situation is that when I install the compute node (Nova) on the VM of server 1, I cannot use it to manage the resources on server 2.

Is there any way I can use openstack to manage a large quantity of physical servers instead of VMs?

Thanks in advance!

Of course you can. OpenStack was designed for this. The purpose of installing it to VMs is primarily for evaluation, testing and learning, rather than production deployment.
