This is for people who need to administer a handful of machines, all fairly different from each other and all Very Important. Those systems are not Cattle! They’re actually a bit more than Pets. They’re almost Family. For example: a laptop, workstation, and that personal tiny server in Sweden. They are all named after something dear.
Liz Rice and I spoke about pets & cattle recently on The Changelog. I asked her, “from your perspective, are the people still doing it the old-school pets way?”
This tool is a great example of Pets-style administration being alive and well.
