SEPP - Software Installation and Sharing System

Tobias Oetiker - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich


SEPP is an application installation, sharing and packaging solution for large, decentrally managed Unix environments. SEPP can be used without making modifications to the organizational structure of the participants' servers. It provides consistent application setup, documentation, wrapper scripts and usage logging as well as version concurrency and clean software removal. This paper first gives an overview of products already available in this field and then goes on describing SEPP.
