Bifrost

Bifrost (pronounced bye-frost) is a set of Ansible playbooks that automates the task of deploying a base image onto a set of known hardware using ironic. It provides modular utility for one-off operating system deployment with as few operational requirements as reasonably possible.

Bifrost’s Mission

The mission of bifrost is to provide an easy path to deploy ironic in a stand-alone fashion, in order to help facilitate the deployment of infrastucture, while also being a configurable project that can consume other OpenStack components to allow users to easily customize the environment to fit their needs, and drive forward the stand-alone perspective.
