Deployment and Scheduling tool for Bare Metal


This is a simple tool to provision bare metal machines using OpenStack Bare Metal Service (ironic) and, optionally, OpenStack Image Service (glance) and OpenStack Networking Service (neutron).

Please note the Metalsmith project is in maintenance mode and it’s functionality is slowly being introduced into Ironic’s API and usual clients. No additional features are expected to be added to metalsmith directly.
