I am looking to build a solution that will automate the process of creating a website on a windows rackspace cloud server.
The requirements/functionality would be similar to this: https://www.drupalgardens.com/create-site
The purpose of our solution is to give users a 30 day free trial of our CMS software.
Here is the usage case:
1) User Signup through form similar to this: https://www.drupalgardens.com/create-site
2) System will instantly/automatically create a sub domain (xxx.hosted.com) and install copy of CMS software files + MySQL database
Is this possible? Is there an existing modual/solution that can be used (i.e. chef) or does it have to be custom built ?
Any suggestions/recommendations are welcome.
