You will need to figure out how to store the machines (assuming a
database of some kind). Optionally it would be great to have an API so that
we could make use of it with other tools whether its an android app,
automated tool, etc.

You also will need to consider having a user/pass system with some
privileged users, but that might be a feature we can deal with later if it
gets too complicated. I'd be happy if it at least works and then adding the
user stuff later.

Also, you might consider designing it with a backend separate from the
front end (i.e. terminal frontend, webapp frontend, etc).
