+
+Important Notes
+===============
+
+This is the OPNFV Colorado release that implements the deploy stage of the
+OPNFV CI pipeline via Apex.
+
+Apex is based on RDO's Triple-O installation tool chain.
+More information at http://rdoproject.org
+
+Carefully follow the installation-instructions which guide a user on how to
+deploy OPNFV using Apex installer.
+
+Summary
+=======
+
+Colorado release with the Apex deployment toolchain will establish an OPNFV
+target system on a Pharos compliant lab infrastructure. The current definition
+of an OPNFV target system is OpenStack Mitaka combined with an SDN
+controller, such as OpenDaylight. The system is deployed with OpenStack High
+Availability (HA) for most OpenStack services. SDN controllers are deployed
+only on the first controller (see HAIssues_ for known HA SDN issues). Ceph
+storage is used as Cinder backend, and is the only supported storage for
+Colorado. Ceph is setup as 3 OSDs and 3 Monitors, one OSD+Mon per Controller
+node in an HA setup. Apex also supports non-HA deployments, which deploys a
+single controller and n number of compute nodes. Furthermore, Apex is
+capable of deploying scenarios in a bare metal or virtual fashion. Virtual
+deployments use multiple VMs on the jump host and internal networking to
+simulate the a bare metal deployment.
+
+- Documentation is built by Jenkins
+- .iso image is built by Jenkins
+- .rpm packages are built by Jenkins
+- Jenkins deploys a Colorado release with the Apex deployment toolchain
+ bare metal, which includes 3 control+network nodes, and 2 compute nodes.
