Automatic Deployments taken to a new level

I was doing some research for an article I was thinking about writing on Automated Deployment and came across this fantastic blog post by Grig Gheorghiu. He talks about how OpenX uses Amazon EC2 (virtual machine cloud) to automatically provision and terminate servers of different types, different monitoring solutions they use, and in another post he talks about the different automated deployment technologies that can be used (push vs. pull, ruby, python, etc).
I personally liked the comments about 'never having to log onto a production server', and "There's nothing like real-world network traffic, and I mean massive traffic -- we're talking hundreds of millions of hits/day -- to exercise your carefully crafted system infrastructure."
All the comments at the bottom are really good as well.
