Continued to research into and found existing elements of OpenStack that could be extended to fit project requirements for user management and control of instances. Also found alternative networking options for compute nodes. Next week will be focused on installing and creating a simple extension of the OpenStack dashboard.

Worked on researching whether there were existing OpenStack user management tools that met project requirements as well as what existing elements of OpenStack could be extended to fit project requirements for user management and control of instances. There did not appear to be any tools available that controlled the time period within which users could access and manipulate their instances.

Have gotten to the point where the cloud controller recognises the new compute node. Requires some modification for the compute node to be fully functioning. Will be starting on my literature review for my report.

Worked on adding an additional compute node to the current one-node installation of Openstack. Ran into some snags. Will be installing the additional compute node on a new machine.
