Digital Rebar Platform (aka DRP) a provisioning and workflow platform that uses open composable content containing templates and scripts for server provisioning and configuration. It also allows for service-side API extensions known as plugins.
The composable nature of Digital Rebar allows operators to mix and match content from various forces.

- RackN – Implements the open API to enable a production data center management platform.
- Custom / Internal – Proprietary packages by operators for internal use
RackN supports the Digital Rebar Community by managing the community as well supporting and building a variety of open source packages.
