CloudStack AutoInstallation Script
On my recent trip to Japan, I discovered during a CloudStack presentation that one of the Japan CloudStack User Group members, Takuma Nakajima, had written an auto installation script.
This script does more than just 'yum install cloud*' it actually handles the configuration of the host. Sadly all of the directions were in Japanese, and when I first tweeted about the existence, I quickly received a request for documentation in English, and during LinuxCon Japan, Satoshi Shimazaki and Takuma Nakajima translated the README
This really is a quick and simple way to get started with CloudStack - simply pass in the arguments for what you wish to have setup, and let it do all of the hard work.
