Open Source Powering Automated Provisioning

O núcleo do phoenixNAP Bare Metal Cloud platform runs on open source software. In the backend, phoenixNAP utiliza Canonical’s Metal-as-a-Service (MAAS) open source software to enable automated provisioning of physical servers and OS installations. MAAS has helped phoenixNAP reduce the time it takes to deploy a physical server with an operating system to about a minute.

Open Source Operating Systems

Open Source Operating Systems

Bare Metal Cloud allows users to deploy the most popular open source operating systems with a single click. Available operating systems include the latest version of Ubuntu and CentOS 7. The simplicity of deploying these OSs on Bare Metal Cloud instances provides development teams with flexibility in scaling their infrastructure resources, ensuring fast allocation of resources and immediate access to essential IT tools.

Open Source Infrastructure as Code Tools

Open Source Infrastructure as Code Tools

In line with our commitment to open source, Bare Metal Cloud is compatible with the most popular open source Infrastructure as Code tools. Users can leverage open source Terraform, Ansible, Pulumi, and Chef modules to provision Bare Metal Cloud servers automatically. The Bare Metal Cloud development team is actively working on integrating the platform with even more IaC and automation modules, as well as other open source projects like Kubernetes and Rancher.

GitHub and Slack Communities
