OpenStack consists of a number services for running IaaS clouds. This includes Object Store (Swift), Compute (Nova) and Image (Glance) services, among others.
See Getting started with OpenStack Nova for details on how to try out the OpenStack packages.
OpenStack has a preview repository, allowing Fedora N-1 users to try out OpenStack packages from the latest Fedora release. This is similar to the Virtualization Preview Repository.
Preview packages, currently OpenStack Folsom, may be installed using yum after performing the following step:
$> cd /etc/yum.repos.d/ $> wget http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/openstack/openstack-folsom/fedora-openstack-folsom.repo

Rather than recommending users to download pre-built Ubuntu images in Getting_started_with_OpenStack Nova, we should have a set of official Fedora images like Cloud_SIG/EC2_Images. These should be built using similar process to the EC2 images.
- openstack-reddwarf - database as a service (will be part of openstack-nova?
- crowbar - OpenStack deployment service and chef wrapper
Some of Ubuntu's stuff may be useful to compare against:
