This talk is about the bmc-toolbox, an open-source project that leverages the Baseboard Management Controller (iLOs iDracs and similar) to help manage a large fleet (>50K) of bare metal servers at Booking.com

this talk describes the tools part of bmc-toolbox and various aspects of managing a large fleet of bare metal servers.
