Imagine being able to use one centralized console to manage all of your Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems, whether they are mainframes, desktops, or servers - or physical or virtual machines. The Smart Management Add-On allows you to manage the complete lifecycle of your Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems.
The Smart Management Add-On allows you to provision, patch, configure, and fully control your Red Hat Enterprise Linux development, test, and production systems. By proactively automating routine tasks, such as patch management, you will have time to concentrate on other, higher value-added tasks.
