Managing close to 80 physical servers with limited technical resources can quickly become a challenge for any organization. Purchasing and maintaining subscriptions for each of these systems requires diligence and excellent management skills, as the IT team at the University of Southern Mississippi discovered in 2008.

None of the servers that System Administrator James Daniel worked with in the data center were based on the same hardware platforms, which meant that he had to consistently manually reconfigure the servers.

In this case study, we'll learn how USM's IT team turned to Red Hat's 'Satellite' to provide a reliable, advanced, open source systems management solution to not only ease their systems management challenges, but to streamline the university's IT environment, reduce overhead and minimize errors.
