Chapter 2. Accessing the cloud

This section describes the various methods you can use to access to your Rackspace Private Cloud once it has been installed. Your cloud consists of two main components: controller node and compute nodes. You can perform most actions using the command line interface on the compute node, the controller node, or remotely from another machine. If you prefer a graphical interface, you can use the web-based dashboard. A number of OpenStack client utilities are available to help you control your cloud.
