Crowbar is a platform for server provisioning and deployment from bare metal. It is of particular use in automating deployments of OpenStack.



DevStack is a set of shell scripts to build complete OpenStack development environments. It is useful to create a small OpenStack environment that will be used for hacking, testing, etc. and is therefore primarily used for upstream development.
