Easy Cloudstack Installation - Your own cloud infrastructure

manishfoodtechs profile image manish srivastava Updated on ・5 min read

Please refer to my previous posts regarding creating your cloud service like digital ocean or google cloud. Part 1 and Part-2 and Part-3 . Also most important listening your VMs on external IPs here -4

In Part-3 we have also seen how to install opennebula. Opennebula is an alternative to openstack/ cloudstack.

what is Cloud Stack?

Alt Text

Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform. CloudStack is used by a number of service providers to offer public cloud services, and by many companies to provide an on-premises (private) cloud offering, or as part of a hybrid cloud solution.

Easy Installation
This is a build your own IaaS cloud guide on setting up a Apache CloudStack based cloud on a single Ubuntu 18.04 (LTS) host that is also used as a KVM host.

Please refer to my previous post for different types of hypervisors and how to find they are enabled.

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository universe
1-
ENSURE :Ensure that the universe repository is enabled in /etc/apt/sources.list.

Universe is enabled by default so you usually don't need to do this. You could edit the sources file from the terminal:
sudoedit /etc/apt/sources.list

And then uncomment the universe sections of the following lines

#deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise universe
#deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates universe

2:
apt-get install openntpd openssh-server sudo vim htop tar -y

cloudstack-setup-management

23. Check your cloud logs:

systemctl status cloudstack-management
tail -f /var/log/cloudstack/management/management-server.log

ctrl+c to stop the logs

24.

After management server is UP, proceed to http://192.168.1.10(cloudbr0-IP):8080/client and log in using the default credentials - username admin and password password.

25.

If you have public IP then you can use IP tables to listen http://192.168.1.10:8080 on your http://PiblicIP:Port as detailed in my previous post here
