Gold Image Automation

The building and testing of fully populated VM images (OS, dependendencies, service binaries and base configurations, required data) into a single VM image that can be used to “stamp out” production machines that are ready to serve almost immediately upon creation. Such a Gold Image can be developed and validated outside of production and are tested and “blessed” when new components (binaries, configs, data, patches) are released.

As opposed to the creation of a single simple base image and depending on startup scripts (or manual work) that pull down OS patches and all other requirements.
