Aeon-ZTPS is a universal Zero-Touch-Provisioning server for data center infrastructure systems. Aeon-ZTPS was developed specifically to address the need for network engineers to bootstrap their datacenter switches without having to deal with the differences in the underlying NOS mechanisms.
Aeon-ZTPS runs as an Ubuntu 16.04LTS server using the Flask framework and a simple SQLite database. The system provides both a REST/JSON API and a GUI. The Aeon-ZTPS can optionally provide the DHCP service (included, but not enabled by default).
The complete documentation for Aeon-ZTPS can be found at Read the Docs. You can also build the docs locally by running "python setup.py build_sphinx" in the project root directory. You can then access the docs by opening the file docs/_build/sphinx/html/index.html.
