Bare metal cloud on commodity hardware

Intel's vPro offers remote power-on/power-off, boot redirection, network controls and video redirection. That's exactly the feature set we need for bare-metal cloud. Intel vPro is available on many computers, with a minimal price premium: if you are reading this on a computer bought by a large company, your machine likely has everything it needs to become a node in an OpenStack bare metal cloud. Having a bare-metal cloud with commodity hardware would: * simplify testing and deployment of OpenStack * allow cloud customers to get full, bare machines through the same API * unify the management of dedicated machines & cloud machines for providers * eliminate the virtualization tax (e.g. for databases) I've done a number of experiments with Intel's vPro, and I believe it does support all the functionality we need. We should also discuss whether we can achieve this through PXE, IPMI or other remote control systems. (Session lead is justinsb)
