Available on github https://github.com/RuggedPOD, latest version of RuggedPOD firmware includes now authentication and support latest version of the RuggedPOD controller board. This board includes a Raspberry PI 2 infrastructure with remote power on/off functions for each blades as well as power measurement in real time per blades, and remote console access.
The next step is to include a local PXE infrastructure as to be able to remotely boot up blade and provision them without issue. We are expecting that feature to be available in next firmware upgrade by the end of the year !
Thanks to Maxime, Mikael and Guillaume for the hard work they produced on this update. The firmware is released under GPL license, and you can easily participate to this code. It is currently using Open Compute OCS RestAPI, with some extensions.by
