Configuration management & backup tools?

  • Has anyone played with  pfMb for backup over SSH?
    I also wanted to ask what is a good tool for configuration management system for multiple sites?
    I can VPN into each and make my changes, but if there were a way to make multiple updates at once it would help them happen on a more timely basis. I know and have used the pfsense remote backup system that comes with the gold membership, but is there were a way to both keep backups and manage updates, that would be fantastic.
