Open Source Configuration management and package delivery: machine component
Bombardier is a software system that delivers visibility, control and automation to datacenter environments. Bombardier provides a means for changes to be rolled out to a network of servers in a highly controlled way, providing optimum security, logging, centralized change control.
This package is called the “Bombardier Client,” and its purpose is to provide some facilities for the Bombardier Server to make it easier for the server to do its job. If you’re a stickler for terminology, then, it’s not really a client at all, since is not used to connect to a server.
