I've been through a lot of tools for configuration management. This is the first one that felt like it actually worked like I felt it should.

Simple, powerful, and lacking in cruft, it still enables me to do my job and get stuff done quickly, without spending time fighting with the tools. Unlike tools like cfengine, chef, puppet, bcfg2 (I've tried them all and used at least 3 of them to deploy production servers) you don't spend a lot of time figuring out how to do things, you just do them. Idempotency is built in to just about everything and the ssh push model means you don't need a server or an expensive hosting environment (chef, puppet) to get stuff done. The documentation is lacking in full examples, but is otherwise complete showing they "get" the python way of doing things as far as documentation is concerned.

I recommend anyone who has to deploy servers in a reliable and repeatable manner take a good hard look at ansible.
