There are multiple tools that allow for deploying OpenStack on containers. Some of these tools started from scratch with contianers in mind, some others broke backwards compatibility and some others are aiming for a smooth transition from host based deployment to a containerized one.
TripleO is undergoing the transition from a baremetal to a containerized deployment and it's already overcome several challenges related to this process. This presentation aims to share the technical challenges from a deployment and operations perspective that are common to every containers based OpenStack deployment. The experiences that will be shared go from config management to volumes and network administration.
