Ansible provides great reliability when coupled with a versioning system (git). It helps providing predictability to the network by knowing exactly what's being pushed after validating it in production.
This is the most scalable product of its type.
The most valuable features are security and dynamic routing.
SaltStack has given us the ability to deal with systems at scale and rectify issues at scale.
I want to build automation that is intelligent, part of the fabric of our environment, and is somewhat self-sustaining. I think SaltStack can help me do this.
The monitoring features are very useful for network engineers.
It is simple to manage and it is all done from a single dashboard.
Enables maps to be drawn out.
Chain management is a good feature. I don't get it on other solutions.
The network security of BMC TrueSight Network Automation has been the best feature.
Depending on who's looking at the data, they need to configure that data in different ways, and the dashboards help us to do that better than what was previously available.
It allows us to manage backups in big companies. It is also useful in managing the configuration changes.
The feature that I really enjoy is the ability to script changes across all of your devices.
