I have an interest in picking up cfengine at some point in order to manage a cluster of Xen hosts more effectively. I am aware however of it’s complexity. So this blog post stuck me as quite interesting. Even more so since it seems Puppet is ruby based. Like cfengine:

Puppet lets you centrally manage every important aspect of your system using a cross-platform specification language that manages all the separate elements normally aggregated in different files, like users, cron jobs, and hosts, along with obviously discrete elements like packages, services, and files.

In a comment on the linked post, I also noted another system to investigate: bcfg2.
