Thousands of Linux installations - and only one administrator

The University asked me to look at providing a Linux service on more than 2300 cluster machines. Obviously installing and maintaining such a system could potentially be a large headache.

Currently we have a system under development which appears to satisfy our needs for the moment. The shape of the system is a little odd, since it makes use of facilities we already had, and it has to satisfy some of the peculiar demands of the decision makers. But it is easily installable, easily distributed, and easily maintained; for this reason it will perhaps interest others who are looking at similar requirements.
