Recently I had a discussion with a great customer where they wondered if there was a smart and automated way of deploying operating systems together with applications. Of course, I said, you can use Razor and Puppet for those things. However, they wanted a completely hands-off approach that included a function for server locality. The hands-off piece is already built-in with Razor, but server locality? Not really. Razor just pulls in nodes that fit the hardware specifics from a pool of available nodes, and deploys operating systems on them. What the customer wanted was a way to say that the top 5 servers in a rack should be deployed with something, the next 10 something else, and the bottom 5 with a third thing. So what to do?
