It goes without saying that booting and configuring a server manually every time you need one gets old fast. Thankfully there are a number of tools to help with orchestration and automation available to you.
To list a few you can:
- create a 'golden image' of a server's desired state.
- learn and setup Chef/Puppet/Salt Stack to manage your infrastructure.
- use Rackspace's Cloud Deployments to spin up an environment.
Most people would agree that more automation is a good thing, especially if your day to day involves any type of server administration. Saving yourself time on a repetitive task is almost always a good thing. To that end we would like to save you some time with a couple of new features available for building Cloud Servers, Server Key Pairs and the Disk Partition option.
