We use xCAT http://xcat.sf.net/ for our HPC systems, so the SGI and
IBM clusters and for the service and for the front-end and service
nodes for our BlueGene/Q as well as our GPFS and TSM infrastucture.

For our infrastructure stuff like web servers we use Puppet (as they
are all Debian based VMs deployed via Proxmox and xCAT doesn't support
that).

There's also Warewulf which I believe a number of people on the list
use: http://warewulf.lbl.gov/

All the best,
Chris
