Image deploy for a blade farm and other different servers. And other things related.


Hello everybody,

in a month or two I will receive a blade rack and a normal rack , both full of servers with different architectures and all of them with 2 or 3 different purposes.

The blades will be homogeneous, all of them will have the same hardware, and sometimes I will have to change their OS from centos, to debian and to windows. Different kinds of rendering = different OS.

On the other hand I will have a dell rack, with some dell machines pe2900,pe2950, and some intel machines with nehalem chips. Also for rendering and investigation purposes. I will need to be able to change the OS as easy and fast as possible.

So I was thinking..., my knowledge about this stuff is not that much, lets ask some advice.


I'll be glad to read some suggestions about software, distribution, how to manage the data, backups , snmp, dhcp on this pool, if PXE is needed, what happens with the bonding, how to deploy the software, how to have a plug and play cluster for cpu processing, ..... and I guess something else will appear.


many thanks.
