This paper describes the generalization of OpenStack cloud resource management software to manage hardware resources other than the standard resources on the servers. To this end, OpenStack resource data structure is updated and the Nova project, which runs on the compute node, is rewritten so that it can run on different hardware platforms without depending on the operating system.
