Kolla Overview

The Kolla project is a member of the OpenStack Big Tent Governance. Kolla's mission statement is:

Kolla provides 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

Please get started by reading the Developer Quickstart followed by the Ansible Deployment Guide.

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. Images reside in the Docker Hub Kollaglue repo.

The Kolla developers build images in the kollaglue namespace for the following services for every tagged release and implement Ansible deployment for them:

  • Ceilometer
  • Cinder
  • Glance
  • Haproxy
  • Heat
  • Horizon
  • Keepalived
  • Keystone
  • Mariadb + galera
  • Mongodb
  • Neutron (linuxbridge or neutron)
  • Nova
  • Openvswitch
  • Rabbitmq
$ sudo docker search kollaglue

A list of the upstream built docker images will be shown.


  • ansible - Contains Anible playbooks to deploy Kolla in Docker containers.
  • demos - Contains a few demos to use with Kolla.
  • dev/heat - Contains an OpenStack-Heat based development environment.
  • dev/vagrant - Contains a vagrant VirtualBox/Libvirt based development environment.
  • doc - Contains documentation.
  • 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.
  • docker - Contains jinja2 templates for the docker build system.
  • tools - Contains tools for interacting with Kolla.
  • specs - Contains the Kolla communities key arguments about architectural shifts in the code base.
  • tests - Contains functional testing tools.
