I know this is an old thread, but the answer has changed - there is now a way of doing this. You can use the method outlined in http://boot.rackspace.com/ to boot from an iPXE boot source - check out this URL for additional information.
Sit down and watch this. It walks through setting up a simple multi-node cluster and I found it very clear. The last bit about setting up NAT will not apply, because he is running his cluster on Virtualbox. There is an associated slideshow linked in the video description.
It boggles me that you would entertain Openstack and make it depend on two commercial (cloudbase and MSFT). I'd absolultely kick them both to the curb, especially with regard to supporting something changing as rapidly as openstack. Admittedly it is sometimes difficult (and nauseating) to separate the Openstack hype and vendor swarm from what it actually ...
I don't now about MiFuel, but in the standard Openstack you download the keys from the Horizon Dashboard.
Proxmox is free, sort of. The 3.1 series requires a support license $400 euros per server per year to get access to the enterprise repos. You can use the non-subscriber repos for free, but they are no as up to date. I have a little over 70 proxmox servers in a cluster. It very fast and reliable. You can migrate VM's from one machine to another as long as you ...
No it is not. The mac can be set through the Libvirt domxml or the qemu command line.
VMware ESXi is free. with not limitations as a standalone solution, there only limitation of the standalone or free edition is the ability to manage the host via vSphere and enable the enterprise functionality such as VDS, vMotion, DRS, HA, SDRS to name a few. Now Microsoft Hyper-V is also free persay Windows Server 2012 Standard will allow you to host 1 ...
This really depends on what the VMs will be doing and who will have to be doing that. If you need to give VMs to users/developers, but they will have no control over the deployment of those VMs, openstack is going to be overkill. In fact, any large system will be overkill if you intend to use a single host. KVM with libvirt are perfectly fine and they can ...
If you want something easy and powerfull, go with Proxmox. It is free software based on Debian using KVM. You drive this with a web interface. When you face some limitations (for example you want to use physical drives, which is not possible directly with the web interface) you can edit a configuration file and voilà. Proxmox allow you to manage several ...
I'd go for VMware ESXi, and then when you expand, you can start to look at VMware vCenter, and their vCloud tool suite (some of which can be used to give your customers control over their own VM). The entire tool suite includes stuff to manage resource usage by your customers' VMs, so you can bill them accordingly. OpenStack is nice, but as HopelessN00b ...
