Hi all,

I'm wondering... is it possible, to configure openstack on Ubuntu 12.04, and use it as a type of file server, i.e. it has a a few giga bytes from a machine or two, and then use these available resources to share files. It will be done over LAN and on virtual machines.

I've spent some time on it and now I'm worried that when I've got it Openstack, nova, object/swift etc, up and running it would have been all in vain.

Could you guys guide me.

I've been using the following book - OpenStack Cloud Computing Cookbook - to configure openstack on ubuntu server 12.04 via virtualbox on windows.

Thank you all in advance!
