Installing Ubuntu Server
The basic steps to install Ubuntu Server Edition from CD or USB stick are the same for installing any operating system.

Mass provisioning of Ubuntu Server
Ubuntu Server also includes a network-based provisioning system that uses Ubuntu’s Metal as a Service (MAAS) tool. Based on the industry-standard PXE network-boot protocol, MAAS enables the rapid, automated provisioning of many systems simultaneously.
Canonical’s Landscape further integrates MAAS technology with enterprise-class support for systems management and compliance requirements.
