The technologies involved in provisioning bare metal machines have remained mostly unchanged since the 1990s. With the recent surge in interest in running cloud native workloads on-prem, this previously underappreciated part of the stack is experiencing a renaissance. Tinkerbell, an open source project for provisioning bare metal using the same API-centric, declarative configuration and automation approach pioneered by the Kubernetes community, helps companies bring cloud native workloads to bare metal.
