Hi i have a VM on which i was doing my development. now i have a situation in which i should run copies of that vm in different buildings. so i thought of getting a raspberry pi and running my programs on them in each building.

i have around 50 buildings and installing all the libraries and copying all those files into so many individual machines would be tough.. so is there any way where we can copy all those files(installed libraries and files present in my vm) into my raspberry pi?

i tried searching on google but nothing came up.

"is there any way where we can copy all those files ... into my raspberry pi?' -- You mention one VM and my (or just one) RaspberryPi, but complain about "50 buildings" and "so many individual machines". Why are there "so many individual machines" but only one RPi? Are you considering "getting a raspberry pi" or 50 RPi? – sawdust Jul 12 '13 at 2:55
@sawdust right now i have only 4 of them but i'll have to get 50 installed – Kiran Vemuri Jul 12 '13 at 20:59

Almost certainly not in their present form, since the raspberry pi is most likely a different architecture than the VM. If you set one pi up manually though, it's very easy to duplicate it by imaging the SD card.

yes! i was doing that. but when the number of raspberry pi's increased to 50, i just wanted to know if there's a possibility. Thanks. – Kiran Vemuri Jul 12 '13 at 20:42
