Large scale deployment of SMB appliances managed by SmartProvisioning requires a technical person who knows how to configure the appliance on site (this should be done manually for each appliance on deployment time).
This article demonstrates how to orchestrate large scale deployment of SMB appliances using existing API and tools automatically.
