Digital Rebar Provision

Welcome to the Digital Rebar Community, home of the open source Digital Rebar Provision (DRP) project. DRP is the data center provisioning and content scaffolding designed with a cloud native architecture replacing Cobbler, Foreman, MaaS or similar technologies. It offers a single golang binary (less than 30MB) with no dependencies capable of installation on a laptop, RPi or switch supporting both bare metal and virtualized infrastructure.

At a Glance

Community Mission: Embrace the Heterogeneous Nature of Data Center Operations while Eliminating Complexity and Manual Steps.

Principal Motivation: Collaborate on a technology that revolutionizes how traditional data center infrastructure operations can gracefully absorb next-generation workloads without churn and additional technological complexity. DRP enables upgrade and continuous deployment automation for production-scale deployments of technology such as Docker, Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, etc.

Digital Rebar Provision is a production-ready open implementation that can be designed to reliably deployed in large-scale, multi-site data centers as well as soon to be deployed edge sites. This effectively productizes best practices in a way that allows creation of consistent and discoverable operating environments. Users benefit with fast time-to-value and the community benefits by having consistent installations across the ecosystem.
