A common problem in corporate environments is managing the large number of computers in those environments. For example, how do you ensure that all the computers have the latest software patches? How do allow users to easily and autonomously download new applications to their desktops?

In this project, we investigate whether OpenISR can help solve these problems.

To understand the advantages and disadvantages of OpenISR, we set up a testbed in a corporate IT environment. We then defined several usage scenarios and built solutions, using OpenISR, for each of those scenarios.

We are now ready to move to phase 2 of the project where we extend OpenISR to support more scenarios.

This is a great project to get involved in if you want to know more about virtualization, operation systems, and Linux in general.
