Overall Satisfaction with VMware vRealize Automation, with SaltStack Config

Right now SaltStack & SaltStack SecOps are being used within multiple departments. We have been using them to manage a large fleet of systems at scale. We are using them both as an Event Engine/Configuration management system as well as a tool for governance and vulnerabilities. It works very well for both uses.
  • Event engine/configuration.
  • Vulnerability reporting.
  • Compliance.
  • It's growing fast, so stability.
  • It has allowed my team to be able to manage large scale systems.
  • It has allowed us to have a central viewpoint on the health of our systems.
SaltStack is a newer product, so it learned some of the mistakes that Puppet made. It truly is a system that can respond to events as well as configure systems.

SaltStack is good if you want to be able to proactively respond to events, manage systems at scale, or to ensure compliance or search for vulnerabilities within your infrastructure. It allows you to control a wide range of systems, even beyond Linux hosts.

VMware vRealize Automation, with SaltStack Config Support

We haven't had to spend a lot of time talking to support, and we've only had one issue, which, when dealing with other vendors is actually not that bad of an experience.
