Systems Automation

When it comes to Systems Automation, you can opt for commercial or open source packages. However, I do find working with open source varieties to be more flexible and cost friendly. On Linux there are many options, from rolling your own custom program to installing community supported packages like those listed below, many of which can be used with Mac and Windows operating systems.
