An open-source, cloud computing framework, OpenStack has a modular architecture, each module (aka software) providing a distinct service to the overall OpenStack environment. For each module there is an OpenStack API, or command-line client, which allows users to interact with one particular service at a time. In addition to the individual client interfaces, there is also a more general OpenStackClient that can be used to interact with services across the entire project.
An OpenStack project can be managed either using the Horizon dashboard» or using command line tools. Horizon (which is the code-name given to the dashboard service) provides a convenient, web-based interface for managing servers, while the command line tools are more convenient for automated usage.

The configuration of OpenStack on the ROGER cluster diverges slightly from the 'traditional' configuration users may be familiar with, consequently some modules may not be available.
