The HP Scripting Toolkit (STK) for Windows and Linux provide flexible scripting to automate steps in HP ProLiant server configurations to scale high volumes of server deployments rapidly and cut deployment time substantially. The STK includes a modular set of utilities and documentation that describe how to apply the scripting tools for an automated deployment process.

It delivers hands-off, unattended installation for high volume HP ProLiant server deployments and is integrated with other management tools such as Integrated Lights Out (iLO) and is based on Intelligent Provisioning. Its "Rack and Go" approach frees up scarce IT resources, delivers consistent server configurations across multiple servers, and integrates into popular methods for operating system deployment.

Past versions were based on SmartStart, and were known as the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit.
