Before the announcement of Kubernetes we were using Ansible with Geard, ansible makes it quick and easy to spin up thousands of Droplets on DigitalOcean and then spin up docker containers on those droplets with geard.
We put our project on hold waiting to see what OpenShift was upto with v3… glad to see they have taken the Ansible approach as well.

Eric, any reason we can't use dynamic inventory in the upstream ansible? I'd like to gradually bring Online and the Kube ones into a fairly standard pattern - there has to be some way for people to deploy Origin on top of Kube as well in some cases.
