Automated Configuration


Hi All,

We're currently looking to overhaul the way we manage configuration of servers on our network, and I am trying to track down some solutions.

Currently we use a very archaic process which involves packaging up dependencies and configuration files into .deb packages and managing an internal repository to deploy configuration.

We're very quickly moving into a more hybrid environment, with redhat and debian based systems, as well as Solaris. We're now looking for a solution that will let us manage these three platforms in a similar way.

So far we've been looking at products such as puppet and cfengine, but we'd like some other alternatives, which is what brings me here.

Does anyone have suggestions for other products to look at? We don't mind paying for a solution, as long as it's the right one -- we have over 500 servers to manage, so getting the right solution is more important than something we can start using tomorrow.

Thanks

Our Ops use Puppet and like it. I know a few other companies that use it. I used to work at a company that used cfengine and it created no end of headaches, but that was 10 years ago so I'm sure it's much better these days.
