"Yesterday, I wrote about Cobbler, a linux installation server, originally developer by Red Hat's Emerging Technologies group, that allows users to deploy a large number of Ubuntu Servers in a data center quickly and effortlessly, was accepted into the Ubuntu Archive.

"Today, I introduce you to Chuck Short, a 35 year old software developer who works at Canonical on the Ubuntu Server Team. "I work from home in Ottawa, Canada. I am considered to be a "Server Generalist" which means I have my hands in a bit of everything from Samba to running Ubuntu on the cloud," says Short. "In another life I was a Systems Administrator as well and always had to come up with writing my own install server since propitiatory tools such as Tivoli was cost prohibitive for the companies I used to work for, " continued Short, "and now that we have cobbler I can deploy an Ubuntu server running cobbler to provision other Ubuntu servers in my data center."
