I am dealing with a distributed application which is going to mange a network of Linux-based servers spread among different places. Having the SSH credentials (as the most supported connection mechanism on these servers) we need to deploy our application seamlessly on these servers and run it there to become an new node on our network. Moreover we don't have and don't want super user rights. This is basically a requirement in a scientific environment to run simulations on a network of resources.
Is there any well known approach to such a problem?
