Ironic CPI for bare metal provisioning


José Riguera López <jriguera at gmail.com...>
 

Hello people,

During last months I have been working on a CPI to manage OpenStack Ironic,
to be able to deploy physical servers via Bosh.

Initially it started as a kind of idea/hack "day" experiment just to learn, and still it has some limitations (mainly: sort of persistent disks, no bonding, no code tests) but now it is usable (and slow :-). You don't need the rest of OpenStack components in place, just standalone Ironic (which can also be used to deploy other servers directly) and it is easy to set-up.

I hope you can give a try and enjoy:
