The Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP) bare-metal hardware certification policy guide is intended for hardware vendors who want to certify their bare-metal servers with Red Hat. The RHOSP bare-metal certification tests ensures that you can orchestrate your servers automatically without manual intervention.

Through this program, if the servers meet the requirements you can certify your servers for the IPI component by deploying it on the Red Hat OpenStack Platform.

The Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP) bare-metal hardware certification creates value for customers, because the systems can be managed and automatically deployed and redeployed with Red Hat OpenStack bare-metal hardware without manual intervention.

The certification process, through a series of tests, validates that a certified solution meets the requirements of an enterprise cloud, and is jointly supported by Red Hat and your organization.

The RHOSP bare-metal hardware certification program policies include multiple tests each with a series of subtests and checks, which are explained in the document.
