On beyond Crowbar: RackN and Digital Rebar

Last, but not least in my KubeCon video-palooza series is an interview with RackN founder, Rob Hirschfeld.  Rob talks about their offering Digital Rebar and how it addresses composable operations.

Some of the ground Rob covers

  • How he’s taking what he did at Dell (Crowbar) and taking it beyond physical provisioning and automation.
  • V3 is now called DigitalRebar Composable operations – the company name is RackN
  • Allows you to build up a “ready state” on the infrastructure and then can bring in Ceph or Kubernetes, OpenStack, Mesoshpere…
  • What companies they’re working with and where they seem themselves going – composable operations and addressing the “fidelity gap” – taking the same work from start to scale and addressing the deployment hassles
