OpenStack is, undoubtedly, a really huge ecosystem of cooperative services. Rally is a benchmarking tool that answers the question: “How does OpenStack work at scale?”. To make this possible, Rally automates and unifies multi-node OpenStack deployment, cloud verification, benchmarking & profiling. Rally does it in a pluggable way, making it possible to check whether OpenStack is going to work well on, say, a 1k-servers installation under high load. Thus it can be used as a basic tool for an OpenStack CI/CD system that would continuously improve its SLA, performance, and stability. <img src="https://wiki.openstack.org/w/images/thumb/e/ee/Rally-Actions.png/850px-Rally-Actions.png" width="700">

One of the things that make deploying SUSE OpenStack Cloud hard is that it assumes that you have a layer2 network to do DHCP/PXE-boot, run your SDN on etc. We should explore how easy it is to deploy a cloud across machines that can ping each other (OSI layer 3), but are in different networks - e.g a NUE desktop machine, a prague machine and a server in the NUE cloud network.

make crowbar+openstack work on openSUSE Leap 42.2 part of this is setting up public CI. For that, we need to port mkcloud to work on Debian.
