SaltStack Review

It is fast, making it convenient and practical, allowing me to get information about my servers in no time.

Valuable Features

  • Remote execution.
  • SaltStack being so fast makes it very convenient and practical; allows me to get information about my servers in no time.

Improvements to My Organization

SaltStack allows me to answer user requests in a very efficient manner.

Room for Improvement

I guess the only downside of SaltStack is the limited user base, which leads to poorer documentation because of the lower use.

On a features side, maybe some more security around the API would be good, so it can be used as a central automation tool.

I haven't kept up with latest releases for a while, though, so don't quote me on that.
