I think this is a good question.

Personally, when I have admined large datacenters with ubuntu, it was in
a test/dev environment, and use of the iso was helpful since the lab was
not controlled by MAAS, and the central PXE system was crude.

So, this workflow was generic across anything that you could normally
boot from a CD, including things like FW update discs from HP/Dell:

1) Manual recovery/exploration of a single machine

2) If that worked, put that same CD image into the lab-wide PXE system

3) If that worked, look into the "cloud images" / MAAS approach on an
   isolated vlan, if I could get one/justify it.
