RackN physical layer data center automation platform is called Digital Rebar. The Digital Rebar API and extensive extension catalog are maintained in the open under the Apache Public License v2. RackN distributes Digital Rebar with our proprietary back-end, UX and enterprise extensions to implement the API.
Operators will find the Digital Rebar Platform more than sufficient to replace Cobbler and Foreman. In addition, the unmatched open content library makes the platform unique in the data center operations space.
The RackN distribution includes both the proprietary implementation and open foundational components. The platform is available for up to 20 machines free of charge. We do not maintain multiple builds of Digital Rebar: all value added pieces are available from the single distribution.
