'SystemImager' automates the installation of Linux to multiple machines. It can also ensure safe production deployments: by saving your current production image before updating to the new one, you have a contingency mechanism. If the new production enviroment is flawed, a simple update command rolls you back to the last production image. It can also be used for content distribution on Web servers. It is most useful in environments with large numbers of identical machines. Typical environments include Internet server farms, high performance clusters, computer labs, and corporate desktop environments where all workstations have the same configuration.
