Due to the popularity of Yum Info, we’re thinking about expanding and turning this into a fully functional tool that can help you as server administrators, developers and system admins to monitor your infrastructure to provide a dashboard view of which of your servers/virtual machines need updates running on them. Initially starting out with Yum managed packages, then expanding to other reporting and systems over time. Keen to gather thoughts from our active user base, i.e. you, initially to find out if this is something you would find valuable (and pay for…) or if your happy to keep things just as the way they are as an informational website.
Managing a range of infrastructure can be extremely challenging and time consuming at times, with endless work to do. So we want to see if we can make this easier for people in these roles to manage a small part of their job to ensure systems are kept up to date and are secure. Turning a general reactive process into something that you can manage proactively while giving your stakeholders the confidence that the infrastructure management is in hand.
