Provisioning servers has long been service providers’ bread and butter, but in recent years customers’ demand for higher-performing bare-metal instances has increased dramatically, along with their interest in integrating bare-metal infrastructure with virtualized public clouds. This shift in the types of infrastructure customers are demanding is motivating service providers to create more efficient ways of both provisioning bare-metal infrastructure and integrating it into their customers’ overall infrastructure mix, and OpenStack has recently emerged as a key platform in making both of these developments possible.

Focusing on the creation of a hybridized, OpenStack-based bare-metal and virtual cloud infrastructure, this technical talk will look at the challenges encountered as well as the solutions developed to successfully deliver bare-metal instances with Ironic and hybrid bare-metal and virtual infrastructure. Specific topics that will be covered include:

  • Networking model and automation

  • Deployment of cells

  • Integration with 3rd party software

  • Security
