Project Keswick enables deployment methods from both USB Drives and also out of bands management devices when available.

Project Keswick is designed to work with servers listed on the VMware Compatibility Guide (VCG) and also servers which are not yet supported on the VCG, when registering a Keswick host you will find a full list of supported VCG servers but also be given the ability to register servers which you are trying that are not yet available on the VCG by adding the Vendor, Model and Serial number of the device.

The following sections will provide you a step by step guide to these.
