Multi-Tenant Bare Metal Provisioning with Ironic features Russell Haering of Rackspace.
Rackspace deploys a lot of servers. Over the years we've developed a huge variety of tools that we leverage to automate bare-metal deployment on behalf of customers. Recently we've undertaken a project to add Ironic to our arsenal of bare-metal deployment tools.
Ironic is an OpenStack project which offers an API for bare metal provisioning. Ironic's first "customer" has been the TripleO project, which targets Cloud operators searching for a means of easily bootstrapping hardware in a trusted environment.
