Revision history [back]

AFAIK, Provisioning means arranging for resources while deployment means deploying the machines on provisioned resources. So these can/are often used interchangeably.

An analogy to explain it in a better way can be the server is provisioned and the VM is deployed on top of the provisioned server.

In the context of Ironic since it provisions bare metal servers and then any image can be deployed on those servers.

I hope this helps !!
