OpenStack Project OpenStackHelm vertical png.png

The objective of OpenStack-Helm is to facilitate the deployment, maintenance, and upgrading of modular OpenStack services and their associated dependencies. These can be managed either individually or within complex environments, all atop a Kubernetes platform. To this end, the project offers Helm charts not just for OpenStack components, but also for essential infrastructure elements such as Ceph, MariaDB, RabbitMQ, Memcached and others. While OpenStack-Helm is designed to be image-agnostic—allowing for the use of any compatible images—it also provides pre-built images for most OpenStack projects to ensure a seamless user experience.

All the charts are available via two Helm repositories. To use them run the following:

helm repo add openstack-helm https://tarballs.opendev.org/openstack/openstack-helm
helm repo add openstack-helm-infra https://tarballs.opendev.org/openstack/openstack-helm-infra

Also OpenStack-Helm provides a Helm plugin that can be handy for some cases (see the OpenStack-Helm documentation)

helm plugin install https://opendev.org/openstack/openstack-helm-plugin.git

Version matrix

Below is the table exposing all the combinations of Openstack/Platform/Kubernetes versions that are tested and supposed to work. Not all Helm charts are well supported. The table shows working combinations for compute-kit (Keystone, Glance, Nova, Placement, Neutron (ovs/ovn), Cinder, Heat) deployments.
