What do you think of Ansible?

Valuable Features:: Agentless architecture, relying on SSH only. Great documentation. • Improvements to My Organization:: Provision and configure from nothing on Amazon. • Room for Improvement:: Speed but it only can go as fast as SSH does. • Deployment Issues:: 6 months • Stability Issues:: No. • Scalability Issues:: A little slow. • Previous Solutions:: Used S before. Switched because of coworkers and even if I find SaltStack easier to learn, the documentation of Ansible made me choose it over Salt. • Initial Setup:: Not at all, just need to have general knowledge of SSH. • Cost and Licensing Advice:: Open source.
