Provisioning with Razor

Razor is a provisioning application that deploys bare-metal systems.

Policy-based provisioning lets you use characteristics of the hardware as well as user-provided data to make provisioning decisions. You can automatically discover bare-metal hardware, dynamically configure operating systems and hypervisors, and hand off nodes to Razor for workload configuration.

Automated provisioning makes Razor ideal for big installation jobs, like setting up a new selection of servers in a server farm. You can also use Razor to regularly wipe and re-provision test machines.
