Bare Metal Provisioning
The Challenge: Deploying large private clouds across numerous hardware and network types with consistency and speed
The Solution: Pliant Bare Metal Provisioning. Automate across any hardware and network type. Extend to deploy firmware, OS, networking, management, virtualization, and containerization.
One Automation Solution Regardless of Hardware Type, Brand, or Location
While many hardware manufacturers provide a basic level of automation for deploying bare metal, these proprietary solutions are often complicated, rigid, and limited to basic functionality. Furthermore, these tools don’t address the real-world needs of mixed-hardware environments. Pliant not only provides the most user-friendly interface for automating large bare metal deployments but provides one solution regardless of hardware type, brand, or location.
Integrate All Applications and Workloads With One Platform
Turning a mix of private and public cloud environments into a single business infrastructure is critical to optimizing
your applications and workloads. Pliant can help pull all these environments together under a single automation
and provisioning platform. Whether you’re in the process of migrating or already running workloads across private, public, and on-premise virtualization solutions, Pliant can easily integrate the data and applications that span these environments.
Extend Deployment Capabilities Beyond Bare Metal
Quick, easy, mistake-free bare metal provisioning is important, but what happens after provisioning? With Pliant, once your bare metal is in place, you can use the same interface to automate the interactions your servers need to:
- Upgrade firmware and BIOS
- Connect to the network layer
- Install operating systems
- Reference unique licensing and configuration information
- Register with management and inventory systems
- Deploy virtualization and containerization
Easy Administration Frees Up Your Most Valuable Resources for You Most Valuable Work
Provisioning bare metal and the components and configurations deployed on top does not have to require your most technical resources. Pliant’s low-code/no-code platform is built to:
- Be highly visual
- Offer drag and drop work blocks
- Enable your non-developer staff to build and administer automation workflows
