As a basis, Proxmox and Opennode are the best examples i can provide for easy and fast setup of a bare-metal hypervisor.
Proxmox is quite well established but at this point Opennode seems more promising, that's the reason why i invite you to have a look on its features, its roadmap and its features requests (

Taking as a basis you already know both of them quite well, i suggest as a bare-metal approach some more advanced views in comparison to the status where most of them are now. Some interesting points :

- Hot deployment of templated bare-metal : based on pre-established bare-metal configurations (or "templates" if your prefer), setup to deployment automation of as much as wanted bare-metal ready to boot from the network. These configurations concern the bare-metal themselves but also the configured image appliances they are supposed to host for a given goal.

- Central management of these deployed bare-metal and the mentioned configurations with Sunstone. All Sunstone capabilities being possible through API too.

- Appstore like : taking advantage of third party software for deploying new functionnalities either on the platform (the bare-metal itself) or through image appliances. The load balancing Opennode feature request (,95.0.html) is an example of image appliance serving the capabilities the bare-metal has to offer.

I'm not sure if it were this kind of statement you were waiting for or if it answers your question so ask for details if needed.
