Feedback form is now closed.
The world of bare metal computing is wild. Malleable Metal as a Service (M2) introduces a lightweight service for quickly provisioning nodes in an elastic and multi-tenant environment. By SAN-booting nodes through iSCSI with Ceph-managed images, M2 is able to drastically cut the usual network boot time.

To enhance the multi-tenant M2 experience in a data center, we are integrating M2 with Foreman. Users will still be able to manage the full lifecycle of their bare metal nodes in Foreman, but with the added speed that M2 provides. This integration features a Foreman core M2 plugin, as well as a Foreman smart-proxy plugin to facilitate communication between Foreman and M2.

We hope to see your during our discussion on shaping the next bare metal data center!
