Deploying virtual machines in bulk is a very tedious and cumbersome job. Deploying a virtual machine on a data center involves various tasks, such as installing the operating system, prepping the machine for a system (sysprep), adding a system to the domain, and giving proper access to users. One of the key challenges is planning what to deploy where. The authors propose an algorithm that provides a simplified and efficient solution to the problem.
