comment Can I administer Amazon RDS instances with, Chef? Salt? Puppet? Ansible?
Its seems there's a split between "pull" based systems (chef, puppet, salt?) that need stuff installed on the managed resource, and "pull" based systems. Ansible is in the later category. Some useful discussion here: serverfault.com/questions/568187/…

Thanks -- looking into Ansible. Have been trying to look into Ansible. Looks like their whitepaper is behind an email firewall and they're not responding... :-(

Maybe some combination (Cloud Formation + Puppet) will be nice. But I suspect it will be a hacky nightmare. I've started a more targetted question here serverfault.com/questions/588237/…

If that's true -- that sounds great.

I'm not saying its Ansible's fault. (Well it kind of is -- most of the docs for these tools fail to simply describe the limits of their scope to nOObs so that its clear what possible and what's not). Mostly I'm looking for a practical solution to managing clusters in the cloud. Unfortnately, they're all composed of resources accessible by diverse APIs. Sadly, I'm left with make as my tool of choice.

...unless you want to defining the scope of resources managed by CM software as "only those resources I can install my custom software onto.". Is that the case? The popular definition of CM tools only applies to this narrow scope? What I'm really after is a tool that's good for managing all these things ... load balancers, routers, DNS tables, virtual machine servers, virtual network configurations, managed databases systems,.... etc... etc... etc... It is absolutely possible.
