SaltStack is unique in providing enterprise software for remote system execution together with configuration management built specifically for modern data center infrastructures and any cloud environment. SaltStack takes a programmatic, common-sense approach to server infrastructure configuration and management, allowing IT organizations to quickly create system states and automation flows or to leverage existing content developed by the Salt community.
SaltStack is utilized by enterprise application support teams, system administrators and DevOps staff who require fast and scalable process automation. SaltStack also provides dynamic and flexible parallel provisioning for physical and virtual environments and orchestration for any cloud environment. SaltStack works in a push or pull model with intelligent masters and minions for flexible and dynamic automation.

In 2012 SaltStack was named by GitHub as one of its top-ten largest development projects. SaltStack Enterprise is a long-term supported branch of Salt and, by design, SaltStack code is 100% open, not open core.
