I want to consolidate things more and streamline our implementations. Ideally we'd be able to have a single base install which we could use on different frameworks. We've got a bunch of customizations that we do (nothing too deep mind you), but I'd really like to have an implementation that we can customize & deploy where we want and when we want it.
I don't want to have to start from scratch each time. With cloud servers it's especially important to be able to clone deploy instances.
I'd like to be able to have the same configs (LDAP, user directories, PEAR versions, varnish configs, etc.) done across the board.
I want to be able to run a master on VirtualBox & then deploy that directly to the cloud when we want to launch a new server.
This all seems to to be much more diifficult than I think it should be. Why do we have to start from scratch when launching new servers on Amazon?
I'm curious about Turnkey and like a lot of what you have to say. Quite happy to use your services to make this easier.
