If you're just trying to get your feet wet with distributed software, and
your node count is going to be reasonably low and won't grow any time soon,
it's probably easier to just install it yourself rather than trying to also
learn how to use software deployment technologies like puppet or chef.
Those aren't easier until you are operating at a scale where you need to be
able to automate adding new nodes.
