VIA maintains a bundle inventory and a rack inventory.

The bundle inventory is an input to the imaging activity, and is created by VIA before it begins an imaging run. The bundle inventory is specific to a vendor and hardware type.

The rack inventory includes configuration details of the hardware imaged by VIA. The configuration details includes credentials to access both the data and the management interfaces of the imaged hardware, as well as the protocols to be used to access the interfaces of the imaged hardware.
