In recent weeks, due to the death of Windows 7, Zorin OS is a system that a family member and I are talking about a lot. He likes it, and if I don't convince him to use someone else like Kubuntu, it's the one he'll end up using on his laptop. In addition, it has also been in the news recently by the Zorin OS 15.1 release and yesterday it was again for presenting what they have called Zorin grid.
But what is Zorin Grid? As we read in the publication of the official source, It is a tool that simplifies configuration, management and security fleet in computers powered by Linux in businesses, schools and organizations. Basically, and as they title the article, it will help us to manage all the computers in an organization as simple as if we only had one computer.

Zorin Grid simplifies the management of lots of computers
Zorin Grid will connect us to all the computers in our organization and will allow us to perform remote tasks such as:
- Install and remove apps.
- Configure software update and security patch policies.
- Monitor the status of computers.
- Enforce security policies.
- Keep track of hardware and software inventory.
- Configure desktop settings.
- And much more.
Zorin Grid will allow us to choose how to configure computers once and the service will apply those choices to all or only to the computers we want. All of this, Zorin's team assures, will make these tasks are a matter of second and not hours. In addition, as it is a cloud-based service, we can access its functions at any time, anywhere and all with complete security.

Zorin Grid will be available from this summer and it will support managing computers that use Zorin OS operating system. In the future, it will also support managing more Linux-based operating systems. Zorin has enabled a page from which they will notify us when it is available which we can access from here!.
