Debian is free.
It does not have enterprise support. But paid consultants' contact info is available on debian website.

rocketwec ,
So you are new to Debian, and this forum, Welcome, we all started new so we do understand.
You seem to have a lot of questions, and every one of them is answered in the Debian documentation, that is why the documentation and the FAQ was written, to help new users, that have the same questions, also ,please read this:What we expect you have already Done.
Please at least try to find the answers to your questions,before asking multiple questions.
To help you get started I will give you the link to the Deabian FAQ,
https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-faq/
If you read it, and I hope you do, in the index there is: https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-faq/compatibility.en.html#arches
4.1. On what hardware architectures/systems does Debian GNU/Linux run?

Debian GNU/Linux includes complete source-code for all of the included programs, so it should work on all systems which are supported by the Linux kernel; see the Linux FAQ for details.

The current Debian GNU/Linux release, 10, contains a complete, binary distribution for the following architectures:

amd64: this covers systems based on AMD 64bit CPUs with AMD64 extension and all Intel CPUs with EM64T extension, and a common 64bit userspace.

arm64: supports the latest 64-bit ARM-powered devices. ---- snip----

Please read the documentation. Also it is a good practice to learn how to use a search engine, here is a example:
3.What are the system requirements for Debian
You will find links that go to Debian.org and the Debian wiki, the documentation has information on what the system requirements are. Ahain, I do understand since you are new to Debian, you don't know how to do anything for your self, this is a good time to start learning.
Here is 1 more example: (queston 4, but I had trouble making sense of it) so any way:
copy /pasted key words,:
Code: Select all
 from where do i get the source code to build. debian packages

https://wiki.debian.org/apt-src
The packages are the software,...there also were a lot of other results,browse through them if the above link is not what you are looking for. Have a good day
p.S. https://wiki.debian.org/Packaging/SourcePackage
Please Read.. What we expect you have already Done.
Does any one know about this ?

Please read the page the link goes to, it mentions the details , there is no need to post them here.But I will post part:
from: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/openstack/current/
How do I use these files?

The files here are qcow2 or raw images, ready to use. Once you have downloaded the image, you would typically need to upload it to Glance, using a command like this one for amd64: ---- snip---Please read all of it for more essential details mentioned---

And note at the bottom :
For more information about how to do these steps, read theverification guide.
Other questions?

Other questions can be forwarded to the OpenStack packaging team: debian-openstack at lists.debian.org.

Ahh, I see Sickpig also mentions the verification guide,...so double sure on that,
