QA automation testing on Bare Metal

Registered by Tobin Davis on 2011-10-14

This spec is to come up with ideas and methods for running automation testing on bare metal hardware (i.e. no VM). While it is geared mainly for armel platforms, there are enough x86 systems on the market that could also benefit from this. Testing should focus on server first, as it should be the easiest to implement across the widest software base.
