Description: A scalable solution to automate the configuration of many Debian based devices with a focus on interoperability with the enterprise landscape - RedHat, SuSE, and Ubuntu... why not Debian. The solution should be more than managing system images in a data center by offering "OTA technology" such as OMA, WBEN, Puppet, ect and should be beneficial to a wide range of applications from data center to embedded mobile devices. The entry, http://wiki.debian.org/DistributedAdminTool , should be updated to include a survey of available tools across distributions, what is available with Debian, why the selected direction was chosen.
