Separating the services by running dedicated compute nodes means that Nova (compute) can be scaled horizontally by adding additional compute nodes once all available resources have been utilized.

In case you would like to add an additional compute node to this existing OpenStack setup, you should repeat the steps from this section on the other compute node with the appropriate IP address modification in the configuration file.

As I mentioned earlier, for all-in-one node setup, we can merge the controller ...
