Ironic is the OpenStack service which provides the capability to provision bare metal servers.

Ironic is a Python service which facilitates provisioning of physical machines in a fault-tolerant and horizontally-scalable manner. Its drivers support a variety of hardware vendors (IPMI, hp iLO, DRAC, SMTP, iBOOT, ...). It is integrated with OpenStack Nova via the nova.virt.ironic driver, by which a user can provision physical machines using the same API as one would provision virtual machines with Nova.

Bugs are tracked on LaunchPad.

New features should be registered as a bug in Launchpad with the [RFE] tag, and a specification should be proposed to

The developer community can be found on in the #openstack-ironic channel.
