Our mission is to 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.
