Failures happen, we don't need to talk about that, so it is all about how quick you recover.

The unofficial in-place upgrade from CentOS5 to 6 felt much easier than the beta-official in-place upgrade from CentOS6 to 7. :-!

Packer: Packer




Packer is a free and open source tool for creating golden images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.
Quite powerful tool to create automated virtual images for #Vagrant, #Docker and other platforms.
Using btrfs for such images seems not to be a good idea. The same configuration just different filesystems: xfs 400MB, btrfs 600MB image size. o_O
