Why Stacki for Hyperscale Automation?
Whether it is one node or a thousand, Stacki installs them with the same effort in the same amount of time.
Stacki shares a development history with the open source cluster management project – Rocks – the de facto HPC cluster management software.
Stacki integrates with popular configuration management tools for full stack automation, allowing you to provision bare metal, operating systems, drivers, middleware, containers, and applications.
With Stacki Pro, update thousands of nodes with software or firmware updates for quick and reliable refresh of hyperscale environments.
