  • Python 2.6 or 2.7 (not compatible with Python 3.0).
  • An identity and authentication service endpoint: Keystone
  • A Compute endpoint, with all compute services (API, scheduler, compute, network, etc.) running: Nova
  • An Image Store endpoint: Glance


  • An Object Store endpoint: Swift
  • A networking endpoint: Neutron

Other optional components: Orchestration (Heat), Metering (Telemetry), Database (Trove), Data processing (Sahara). As a rule Horizon aim to provide out-of-the-box support for the other integrated projects.
