Enterprises today have shown a rapid growth in the usage of Linux systems. They are being widely used as an alternative to other operating systems. Along with their ease of use, Linux computers offer more flexibility and configuration options. Anyone can install it and it is often available free of charge. This creates a need for Linux administration in large enterprise networks. Manual Linux administration would consume a lot of time and effort. So, system administrators need to hunt for a tool to perform Linux administration in an automated way. And, using multiple desktop management tools to manage Windows, Mac and Linux computers can be a pain.
