2.1. Introduction

The host lifecycle standard aims to provide a complete policy on host management. It includes deployment, maintenance and removal of a host. Much of the standard is written in a simple checklist form and is divided into sections. Each section can be taken individually depending on the task at hand and can easily be referenced when coordinating efforts with others or ensuring each step has been completed successfully.
