Cloud adoption has significantly increased using the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) paradigm, in order to meet the growing demands of computing, storage and networking, in small as well as large enterprises. Different vendors provide their customized solutions for OpenStack deployment on bare metal or virtual infrastructure. Among these many available IaaS solutions, OpenStack stands out as being an agile and open-source platform. However, its deployment procedure is a time-taking and complex process with a learning curve. This paper addresses the lack of basic infrastructure automation in almost all of the OpenStack deployment projects. We propose a flexible framework to automate the process of infrastructure bring up for deployment of several OpenStack distributions, as well as resolving dependencies for a successful deployment. Our experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed framework in terms of automation status and deployment time, that is, reducing the time spent in preparing a basic virtual infrastructure by four times, on average. © 2019 The British Computer Society 2019.
