Configuration Management (primer/summary/brainstormer)

What's out there?

These are not really meant for configuration mgmt (alone) and have their strengths somewhere else. Just listed for completeness:
  • rsync
  • git
  • fai

and these seem to be the usual suspects (based on some browsing, now sorted :))

How do these scale? Pros and Cons?

  • Oliver's comments:
    • I evaluated Puppet, Chef, cfengine and Ansible earlier - on a purely theoretical level. From what I found Chef seemed to be the best candidate (e.g. scales better than Puppet)
    • We should also look at Foreman to facilitate server life-cycle management with Chef & Co.
    • We should also consider Docker and/or Vagrant in the context of app deployment (in contrast to full VMs), maybe with the help of Packer.
