Is it? Your setup seems well tuned for SAAS hosting, but we're starting 
to deploy Ansible to manage a more "classical" mix of dedicated 
hosts/LXCs where each has different purpose and software.
The wonderful thing about Ansible is thanks to SSH & powershell there's 
no agent to setup, and it's easy to delegate admin tasks to power-users.

Do you expect to extend your solution to generic non-SAAS environments ?

Ansible has one that looks really great, but it's proprietary and quite 
expensive: http://www.ansible.com/tower
Salt has tried several times to get one be failed to this date. Now, 
their community has a reputation for openness so maybe they'd be good 
partners?
