Basically the material will focus on three areas regarding enterprise deployment; Security, Time, and Flexibility.


  • A preconfigured installation = easier to keep secure
  • Automated installations = less human errors
  • No more patching right after installation of operating system


  • No more application installation or configuration right after installation of operating system
  • Multiple machine installations = much easier
  • Automated installations are less administrator dependent = can be initialized by user
  • Easier to maintain and add applications to installations = only need to edit kickstart script
  • Installations can be 100% zero touch = Deploy during lunch…


  • Internet installations can be done from anywere in the world
  • Deployment process can be booted from CD/DVD/PXE/USB/Floppy
  • Answerfiles on webserver makes our bootmedia “immortal”
