Re: [Rdo-list] New to openStack


Sorry if its bit off-topic. Once I install from fedora community site, is there any upgrade path available for Juno later with Red Hat supported stack ( ves 6? ).

One more addendum. I just noticed you asked for the "latest supported version." For that, you will want Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, instead of RDO, which is the community version of OpenStack that Tim Bell pointed to.


The supported version based on Juno will be available on Scientific Linux 6.5 as soon as it's released. The community version based on Juno will require 7, unless significant community effort is put in to make it work on 6.5 (which may not happen).


Here is the URL for the supported version:
