Furthering of the virtual servers … auto-deploy!

One extremely interesting piece popped up for me in researching today …

The use of virtual test servers leads in to new possibilities.  If you go through the time to create a virtual server install script for setting up testing of your builds – you can apply nearly the same process to the real servers for systematically deploying your live server builds in just one command and automatically check the deployment finished properly in the same command.
