10 GitHub Repos for Bare Metal Cloud {IaaC Integrations & Tools}

Developers are always on the lookout for easy-to-use automation tools to eliminate repetitive infrastructure management tasks. With near instantaneous physical server provisioning, Bare Metal Cloud provides an infrastructure foundation for implementing  DevOps tools and technologies for streamlined delivery.

Here is a curated list of the top 10 GitHub repositories that let you adapt Bare Metal Cloud servers to your needs and manage them easily.

What Are Bare Metal Cloud Servers?

Bare Metal Cloud (BMC) is a cloud-native dedicated server platform geared toward DevOps organizations. The platform allows you to deploy non-virtual physical machines in minutes over an API or with  Infrastructure as Code tools.

With unrestricted access to the server’s physical hardware, you can build custom environments optimized for your specific workloads. BMC servers are ideal for running  CI/CD pipelines, testing workloads, or production environments.

There are more than  20 powerful instance types you can choose from. If you’re just getting started, you might want to try entry-level and general-purpose instances. For more complex workloads, compute-optimized or memory-optimized instances are the way to go.

BMC also exposes a  robust API that allows you to manage your server programmatically. This makes it easy to deploy one or one hundred servers across different locations at once with just a couple of lines of code.

To help you automate BMC server management, phoenixNAP has released numerous open-source automation scripts and Infrastructure as Code modules on its GitHub account.
