+Salt is a powerful remote execution manager that can be used to administer
+servers in a fast and efficient way.
+Salt allows commands to be executed across large groups of servers. This means
+systems can be easily managed, but data can also be easily gathered. Quick
+introspection into running systems becomes a reality.
+Remote execution is usually used to set up a certain state on a remote system.
+Salt addresses this problem as well, the salt state system uses salt state
+files to define the state a server needs to be in.
+Between the remote execution system, and state management Salt addresses the
+backbone of cloud and data center management.
