Automated deployment of Ubuntu with Orchestra

“Orchestra is one of the most exciting new capabilities in
11.10. It provides automated installation of Ubuntu across sets of
machines. Typically, it’s used by people bringing up a cluster or
farm of servers, but the way it’s designed makes it very easy to
bring up rich services, where there may be a variety of different
kinds of nodes that all need to be installed together.

For 12.04 LTS, where supporting larger-scale deployments will be
a key goal, Orchestra becomes a tool that every Ubuntu
administrator will find useful.
