The complexity of physical computers and growing popularity of virtual machines increase the problems related to server management. Server administrators manually perform numerous repeating actions related to the IT system. Manual performance of tasks leads to inconsistencies, which in turn lead to downtimes. Most downtimes are the result of unauthorised changes or human errors. Ensuring compliance with company recommendations and correct functioning of servers can be a real challenge for IT specialists.
