One thing I will note is that you don't HAVE to follow the python-based install process.

In fact, if you look carefully at the code on my github, you'll see its pretty easy (because my code doesn't use the python method either).

1) Install MDM (the manager) on a node. 2 command lines give it a protection domain and a license key.
2) Install the SDS (the storage node) on some number of nodes. For each node you add, run a single command on the MDM to register it.
3) Install the SDC (the client) on some number of nodes (could be the same nodes as the storage if you like), and point them at the MDM (single command).

Thats all it takes to install, even without the python script. So, its pretty easy to automate. In Big O notation terms, we'd call it O(N).

Step 4:

Take six servers stuffed full of PCIe flash and put them on a 40Gb network.

Add ScaleIO.

Deploy 1000 virtual desktops in 1 hour and 28 minutes.

Boot all 1000 in 12 minutes.

...and so on.

Freaky elasticity like this belongs in an episode of the X-Files. Or something similar...
