Tiny deployment mode consolidates all OpenStack control plane and compute driver nodes.

A tiny deployment runs on one ESXi host and includes three virtual machines. These include the OpenStack Management Server, the OpenStack template, and the unified control plane and compute driver node.

In tiny mode, the same virtual machine comprises the management and compute clusters. Because tiny mode involves only a single virtual machine, you cannot add compute clusters.

To deploy OpenStack in tiny mode, you must use the VMware Integrated OpenStack API. Deployment using the vApp is not supported.
