Installation guide

The compute-hyperv project offers two Nova Hyper-V drivers, providing additional features and bug fixes compared to the in-tree Nova Hyper-V driver:

  • compute_hyperv.driver.HyperVDriver
  • compute_hyperv.cluster.driver.HyperVClusterDriver

These drivers receive the same degree of testing (if not even more) as the upstream driver, being covered by a range of official OpenStack Continuous Integration (CI) systems.

Most production Hyper-V based OpenStack deployments use the compute-hyperv drivers.

The HyperVClusterDriver can be used on Hyper-V Cluster compute nodes and will create and manage highly available clustered virtual machines.

This chapter assumes a working setup of OpenStack following the OpenStack Installation Tutorial.
