Automation tools for OpenStack-based clouds

The presentation explains how automation tasks can be implemented concretely with tools around the OpenStack universe. To do this, we first look at the tools in question, such as OpenStack Client (OSC), the associated SDK, any extensions, and the providers for Terraform or Ansible. In the course of the workshop, the tools will be installed and set up in a test environment. Afterwards, typical cloud tasks will be performed hands-on with the appropriate tools. A test cloud can be provided for this purpose.
