The RDO community is pleased to announce the general availability of
the RDO build for OpenStack Newton for RPM-based distributions -
CentOS Linux 7 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. RDO is suitable for
building private, public, and hybrid clouds. Newton is the 14th
release from the OpenStack project ( http://openstack.org ), which is
the work of more than 2700 contributors from around the world.

The RDO community project ( https://www.rdoproject.org/ ) curates,
packages, builds, tests, and maintains a complete OpenStack component
set for RHEL and CentOS Linux and is a member of the CentOS Cloud
Infrastructure SIG (
https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Cloud ). The Cloud
Infrastructure SIG focuses on delivering a great user experience for
CentOS Linux users looking to build and maintain their own on-premise,
public or hybrid clouds. At latest count, RDO contains 1157 packages (
https://www.rdoproject.org/documentation/package-list/ ).

All work on RDO, and on the downstream release, Red Hat OpenStack
Platform, is 100% open source, with all code changes going upstream

Getting Started

There are three ways to get started with RDO.

To spin up a proof of concept cloud, quickly, and on limited hardware,
try the  RDO QuickStart ( http://rdoproject.org/Quickstart )  You can
run RDO on a single node to get a feel for how it works.

For a production deployment of RDO, use the TripleO Quickstart (
https://www.rdoproject.org/tripleo/ ) and you'll be running a
production cloud in short order.

Finally, if you want to try out OpenStack, but don't have the time or
hardware to run it yourself, visit  TryStack ( http://trystack.org/ ),
where you can use a free public OpenStack instance, running RDO
packages, to experiment with the OpenStack management interface and
API, launch instances, configure networks, and generally familiarize
yourself with OpenStack

Getting Help

The RDO Project participates in a Q&A service at ask.openstack.org (
http://ask.openstack.org ), for more developer oriented content we
recommend joining the rdo-list mailing list (
https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/rdo-list ). Remember to post a
brief introduction about yourself and your RDO story. You can also
find extensive documentation on the RDO docs site (
https://www.rdoproject.org/documentation ).

The #rdo channel on Freenode IRC is also an excellent place to find
help and give help.

We also welcome comments and requests on the CentOS Mailing lists (
https://lists.centos.org/ ) and the CentOS IRC Channels (#centos, and
#centos-devel, on irc.freenode.net), however we have a more focused
audience in the RDO venues.
