Functional Description: Kadeploy is a scalable, efficient and reliable deployment (provisioning) system for clusters and grids. It provides a set of tools for cloning, configuring (post installation) and managing cluster nodes. It can deploy a 300-nodes cluster in a few minutes, without intervention from the system administrator. It plays a key role on the Grid'5000 testbed, where it allows users to reconfigure the software environment on the nodes, and is also used on a dozen of production clusters both inside and outside Inria.
