Whilst I don't have any experience of installing OpenStack on AWS
I have installed SUSE OpenStack Cloud in a virtual

Firstly I will note that the SUSE install docs on
cover installing third-party OpenStack packages (from the Open
Build Service) on openSUSE Leap 42.2 and SUSE Linux Enterprise
Server (SLES) 12 SP1 or SP2. This is not the same as installing
SUSE OpenStack Cloud and does not use SUSE Manager.

My experience with SUSE OpenStack Cloud says that 1GB of RAM is
not sufficient - whilst the docs suggest requiring a lot more you
can get away with 1.25GB. Do you have a machine available with
16GB of RAM? If so, I'd set up a virtual environment on that
rather than using AWS.

Note there is a forum dedicated to SUSE OpenStack Cloud @
