Software Defined Infrastructure (SDx) allows operators to manage data centers in a more consistent and controlled way. It allows teams to define their environment as code and use automation to execute that definition in practice. To deliver this capability for physical (aka bare metal) servers,
RackN has created a Digital Rebar Provision (DRP) provider for users of HashiCorp’s Terraform.
This provider enables DRP to register machines as available for Terraform creating a server pool of machines either running or waiting for a Terraform install. Operators can easily provision or recover servers using the RackN Portal.
