Everything's better with Bacon.®
Bacon Unlimited Computer Software Desktop Preview Interface GUI Endpoint Management Monitoring Software

Bacon Unlimited is a web-based application that can be viewed and accessed from your network.

Bacon Unlimited is entirely web-based and does not require any software to be installed on an admin's machine to access it.

Central to Bacon are endpoints—servers and workstations—connected and constantly exchanging information securely with Bacon. Bacon runs background jobs to continuously collect information from its endpoints. Bacon provides many functions for endpoint management, such as patch management, package deployment, monitoring, and script execution.

Future iterations of Bacon will include additional features such as
NOC dashboard, system profiles, and network distributed event processing.
