We set the standard for physical layer VMware provisioning.

RackN VMware bootstrapping completely configures new and existing systems into a fully functioning vCenter cluster in minutes.  Our workflow automation includes deep inventory, system HCL validation and firmware updates for multiple hardware vendors.

RackN Integrated Bare Metal Automation eliminates all manual steps to fully automate VMware infrastructure from bare metal via the Digital Rebar Platform. The RackN – VMware solution, using the VMware Hardware Compatibility List (HCL), creates automation to launch fully functioning clusters from the bare metal in hours. The VMware workflow automation includes deep inventory, system HCL validation and firmware updates for multiple hardware vendors.

We eliminate ALL manual steps to fully automate VMware infrastructure from bare metal.

With our VMware automation, customers eliminate weeks of setup effort for new clusters.  Critically, customers can update and reprovision existing clusters in just minutes so that operators quickly and easily keep up with patches and updates.
