From SaltStack's Web site:

SaltStack takes a new approach to infrastructure management by developing software that is easy enough to get running in seconds, scalable enough to manage tens of thousands of servers, and fast enough to control and communicate with them in milliseconds. SaltStack delivers a dynamic infrastructure communication bus used for orchestration, remote execution, configuration management and much more. The Salt open source project was launched in 2011 and today is the fastest-growing, most-active configuration management / systems management project in the world. SaltStack is the company responsible for keeping the Salt project healthy and dynamic. Salt remains 100% open.

The Funtoo Linux version of Salt is implemented using our new Python ebuild system. See Creating Python-related Ebuilds for more information.
