Building 50 Debian servers in a week

Frogfoot is busy assembling 50 Linux servers to be installed around the country as branch servers for one of our bigger clients.

servers 1 servers 2 servers 3

Servers are made up of an Intel P4 CPU, GigE LAN, RAID1 disks and our very stylish metallic face 2U rackmount casing. We use system-imager, PXE boot them and install a custom Debian OS image.

None of this is wildly exciting.. other than the fact that with these 50 servers we beat our previous record number of servers in a single project. The last record was a 22 server cluster last year. Whoohoo!
