Its been over 3-4 months i been itching to find alternative of Ruby based configuration management tool. I came to know about Salt.

Its a configuration management tool written in python, from initial 30 mins of my experience am writing this blog.

It took me less than 2 minutes get master/minion running on multiple VM via Virtualbox. From my experience of Puppet deployment i can simply say Salt much simpler.

What i have done so far?

Played with apt, cmd  and cd modules. Many more to go but i will sleep as its already 4 am.

you can find all info they have got awesome documentation along with cool screen cast which can let anyone swim inside salt.
