While virtualization provides outstanding benefits in server management, cost efficiency, and resource consolidation, some cloud environments with particularly high I/O rate may require physical servers as opposed to virtual.

MCP supports bare-metal provisioning for OpenStack environments using the OpenStack Bare Metal service (Ironic). Ironic enables system administrators to provision physical machines in the same fashion as they provision virtual machines.


Starting from the 2019.2.6 maintenance update, Ironic is officially supported and integrated into MCP. Before the 2019.2.6 maintenance update, Ironic is available as technical preview and can be used for testing and evaluation purposes only.
