Programmable Provisioning with Razor - David Lutterkort, Puppet Labs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Razor is a flexible policy-driven PXE provisioning tool that makes it
possible to manage bare metal machines in a cloud-like manner. Over the
last year, it has seen many changes to make it easier to deploy and manage,
and to simplify its use. Through its combination of automatically
discovering machines, making provisioning decisions based on user-defined
rules, and seamless integration with configuration management tools, it is
not just a PXE provisioning tool in the traditional sense, but can serve as
an engine for automated end-to-end deployment of workloads tailored to
specific scenarios. This talk will introduce the various features of Razor
and show how they can be used in different scenarios such as basic PXE
provisioning, building an OpenStack cloud, and how to integrate Razor with
external systems such as a CMDB or IP address management systems.
