-Introduction
-============
-
-This document describes the steps to install an OPNFV Colorado reference
-platform, as defined by the Genesis Project using the Apex installer.
-
-The audience is assumed to have a good background in networking
-and Linux administration.
-
-Preface
-=======
-
-Apex uses Triple-O from the RDO Project OpenStack distribution as a
-provisioning tool. The Triple-O image based life cycle installation
-tool provisions an OPNFV Target System (3 controllers, 2 or more
-compute nodes) with OPNFV specific configuration provided by the Apex
-deployment tool chain.
-
-The Apex deployment artifacts contain the necessary tools to deploy and
-configure an OPNFV target system using the Apex deployment toolchain.
-These artifacts offer the choice of using the Apex bootable ISO
-(``opnfv-apex-colorado.iso``) to both install CentOS 7 and the
-necessary materials to deploy or the Apex RPMs (``opnfv-apex*.rpm``),
-and their associated dependencies, which expects installation to a
-CentOS 7 libvirt enabled host. The RPM contains a collection of
-configuration files, prebuilt disk images, and the automatic deployment
-script (``opnfv-deploy``).
-
-An OPNFV install requires a "Jumphost" in order to operate. The bootable
-ISO will allow you to install a customized CentOS 7 release to the Jumphost,
-which includes the required packages needed to run ``opnfv-deploy``.
-If you already have a Jumphost with CentOS 7 installed, you may choose to
-skip the ISO step and simply install the (``opnfv-apex*.rpm``) RPMs. The RPMs
-are the same RPMs included in the ISO and include all the necessary disk
-images and configuration files to execute an OPNFV deployment. Either method
-will prepare a host to the same ready state for OPNFV deployment.
-
-``opnfv-deploy`` instantiates a Triple-O Undercloud VM server using libvirt
-as its provider. This VM is then configured and used to provision the
-OPNFV target deployment (3 controllers, n compute nodes). These nodes can
-be either virtual or bare metal. This guide contains instructions for
-installing either method.
