Last week, we released a new white paper: Fast, Simple, and Open: 10x ROI of Building Infrastructure in Layers. This blog highlights that white paper and provides links for additional information.

Executive Summary

RackN allows Enterprises to quickly transform their current physical data centers from basic workflows to cloud-like integrated processes. We turned decades of data center experience into data  center provisioning software so simple it only takes 5 minutes to install and provides a progressive path to full autonomy. Our critical insight was to deliver automation in a layered way that allows  operations teams to quickly adopt the platform into their current processes and incrementally add autonomous and self-service features.


This short paper discusses the history and key architectural drivers for the RackN open source component known as Digital Rebar Provision. We describe how we designed independent architecture layers for Provision, Control and Orchestration that smoothly underlay popular tools like Ansible, Terraform, Chef and Puppet. We also discuss how RackN enhances the Digital Rebar Provision scaffolding with downloadable packages and a centralized management interface. Together, Digital Rebar Provision and RackN deliver a non-disruptive progressive approach to data enter automation that can drives a 10x (or higher!) improvement in infrastructure ROI.
