How to install Microstack on Virtualbox with Ubuntu guest OS

MicroStack is an OpenStack distribution for Ubuntu, which is suitable for the deployment of fully functional OpenStack on a single machine. Installation is quite straightforward.

My environment

  • Host system: Win 10 Pro 64bit
  • VirtualBox 6.1.25r 64bit
  • Guest System: clear server install of Ubuntu 20.04.3 :LTS with bridged networking, 4GB of RAM, 4 vPCU, 100GB of HDD (the size is officially recommended, but mainly is used for hosting virtual VMs)

Installation steps using snap

Official guides use the snap system, where all applications are packaged with all their dependencies. All the microstack installation is relatively fast, taking no more as 15 minutes
