Hi Patrick,

René Koch from the oVirt community ran a lab a while back where he
basically installed a single host as a control node for an oVirt
cluster, and guided people through the process of booting off a USB key
and having their laptop added to the cluster as a compute node - this
adds some real cloud scale with potentially lots of nodes, and would
allow you to do some pretty cool Heat demos, deploy real applications, etc.

Is that kind of thing possible/straightforward with RDO & PackStack?
