Google have created a bunch of internal tools to image, configure, and manage their fleet of over forty thousand Macs:

Puppet for configuration, Munki for package management, and several Google-developed open-source tools, such as crankd, Cauliflower Vest, and CanHazImage.

Great names for enterprise software.
