Most of the companies have to install guide to deploy servers with manual or automatic steps. These guides exist to get a consistent server installation across the organization. Thanks to a consistent environment, the management of the infrastructure is easier and the outages are less common.

Because a virtual machine is basically software, it’s easy to clone and redeploy. We can also create a template from a virtual machine and create new VMs from this template. In this way, we can customize the “initial VM” such as update the OS, copy scripts or set the system, make a template and deploy new VMs from this template. All new VMs will get the OS customization.
