Unlike traditional provisioning tools, Digital Rebar provides a complete life-cycle solution. It is API-driven and built to an Infrastructure as Code design.

We build for operators who want to program infrastructure, not just configure it.

We weren’t satisfied with developing features to solve bare metal provisioning issues. RackN designed Digital Rebar as a collaboration platform for operations within and between companies. We work closely with our customers and community to create long term, repeatable solutions to infrastructure challenges.

Once we solve a bare metal provisioning problem, we build the technology solution directly into the product. Our collaborative mission means if another customer has faced the same challenge you are facing, there will already be a Digital Rebar library for you to use. If there isn’t, we will work with you to build it.

Our customer’s infrastructure literally makes them money: downtime, configuration drift and inconsistent operations are expensive.  RackN Digital Rebar enabled a small team to fully automat operations and focus on value-added performance tuning.
