OpenStack is an open source cloud ecosystem that is designed to work well at all scales. But, how does it work for an individual wanting to deploy a cloud with their own resources?

I've wanted to build a small cloud at home for some time, mostly to serve as a testbed for my development on OpenStack, but also as a platform to virtualize my growing home infrastructure. So I allocated a budget of ~$1500 USD (the price of my first desktop computer) and set out to build a cloud.

This talk will provide an overview of my experience building a small compute cloud from scratch, on essentially a shoestring budget; from acquisition of hardware, through installation and configuration of the cloud, to my use cases for the cloud. It will provide an overview of building a minimum compute cloud by hand, and how to get started using a personal cloud and potential future applications.
