Infrastructure automation
Our review

What we like

Execute commands and define desired state across many remote machines, containers, or locally. Can install packages & manage config files. Understands groups, roles, multiple environments & typed actions against databases, firewalls, Git, etc. Can integrate with Terraform, WinRM, Docker, Ansible, and others. Extendable with Python.

What we don't like

Use of Python means it doesn’t require an agent, but obviously means it requires the Python runtime environment locally (remote side only requires a shell) and must be configured in Python.
