With ISAAC, a typical model for running an attraction is a series of networked PCs loaded with specific software. 

ISAAC duplicates this model but virtualizes the machines and their content, meaning they don’t exist as physical machines, but rather as software configurations on the ISAAC platform, which lives on a server in an equipment room. 

The amount of physical equipment and black boxes is reduced and the equipment room itself becomes more like an IT data center. Authorized users access ISAAC through a secure web interface, from any location. Though ISAAC is relatively new in attractions, the base concept is not new. Similar platforms have long been adopted in other sectors.
