Razor is a flexible, policy-driven PXE provisioning tool. Over the last year, it has seen many changes to make it easier to deploy, manage, and use. Through its combination of automatic machine discovery, provisioning decisions based on user-defined rules, and seamless integration with Puppet, Razor is not just a PXE provisioning tool in the traditional sense, but it can also serve as an engine for automated end-to-end deployment of workloads tailored to specific scenarios.

In this talk we will discuss a few such scenarios, such as using Razor to emulate a traditional MAC-driven PXE provisioning tool, or using Razor to provision Windows and bootstrap Puppet on those machines.

Along with these hands-on usage scenarios, we will also discuss where we see Razor going and share the highlights of its roadmap for the near future.
