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

Ironic is a Project and Python service which facilitates provisioning of physical machines in a fault-tolerant and horizontally-scalable manner. Its drivers support a variety of hardware vendors (Redfish, IPMI, HPE iLO, Dell DRAC, FJ iRMC, SNMP, ...). 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.

Ironic's can be used independently when integrated with OpenStack, or used without other OpenStack services to facilitate Bare Metal as a Service and the general orchestration of bare metal servers in a variety of use models.

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