Kolla Overview

The Kolla project is a member of the OpenStack Big Tent Governance.

Kolla's mission statement is:

To provide production-ready containers and deployment tools for operating
OpenStack clouds.

Kolla provides Docker containers and Ansible playbooks to meet Kolla's mission.

Kolla is highly opinionated out of the box, but allows for complete customization. This permits operators with little experience to deploy OpenStack quickly and as experience grows modify the OpenStack configuration to suit the operator's exact requirements.

Getting Started

Learn about Kolla by reading the documentation online

Get started by reading the Developer Quickstart.

Docker images

The Docker images are built by the Kolla project maintainers. A detailed process for contributing to the images can be found in the image building guide.

The Kolla developers build images in the kolla namespace for every tagged release and implement an Ansible roles for many but not all of them.

You can view the available images on Docker Hub or with the Docker CLI:

$ sudo docker search kolla

OpenStack services

Kolla provides images to deploy the following OpenStack projects:

Infrastructure components

Kolla provides images to deploy the following infrastructure components:


  • ansible - Contains Ansible playbooks to deploy Kolla in Docker containers.
  • contrib - Contains demos scenarios for Heat and Murano and a development environment for Vagrant
  • doc - Contains documentation.
  • docker - Contains jinja2 templates for the docker build system.
  • etc - Contains a reference etc directory structure which requires configuration of a small number of configuration variables to achieve a working All-in-One (AIO) deployment.
  • tests - Contains functional testing tools.
  • tools - Contains tools for interacting with Kolla.
  • specs - Contains the Kolla communities key arguments about architectural shifts in the code base.
