Fuel is an open source deployment and management tool for OpenStack. Developed as an OpenStack community effort, it provides an intuitive, GUI-driven experience for deployment and management of OpenStack, related community projects and plug-ins.
Fuel brings consumer-grade simplicity to streamline and accelerate the otherwise time-consuming, often complex, and error-prone process of deploying, testing and maintaining various configuration flavors of OpenStack at scale. Unlike other platform-specific deployment or management utilities, Fuel is an upstream OpenStack project that focuses on automating the deployment and testing of OpenStack and a range of third-party options, so it’s not compromised by hard bundling or vendor lock-in.Look at Fuel Architecture

This deployment emulates the provisioning process, providing you with an opportunity to get an insight into the web UI without installing anything on your hardware.
Each version of the installer undergoes hardware compatibility validation. Fuel is battle-tested on platforms like Cisco UCS, Dell PowerEdge, HP Proliant, Lenovo ThinkServer, QCT QuantaPlex, Supermicro SuperServer, and others. For the detailed information on models and their hardware modifications, refer to the Hardware Compatibility List.
