Func : A secure, scriptable remote control framework & API

Func is a secure, scriptable remote control framework and API. It is intended to replace SSH scripted infrastructure for a variety of datacenter automation tasks (such as taking hardware inventory, running queries, or executing remote commands) that are run against a large amount of systems at the same time. Func provides both a command line tool and a simple and powerful Python API. It is also intended to be very easy to integrate with your provisioning environment and tools like Cobbler.
