I was looking up here for some comparisons between CFEngine, Puppet, Chef, bcfg2, AutomateIt and whatever other configuration management systems might be out there, and was very surprised I could find very little here on Server Fault. For instance, I only knew of the first three links above -- the other two I found on a related google search.
So, I'm not interested in what people think is the best one, or which they like. I'd like to know the following:
- Configuration Management System's name.
- Why it was created (as opposed to using an existing solution).
- Relative strengths.
- Relative weaknesses.
- Link to project and examples.
