    This month, we announced the long-awaited launch of Idem, an open source tool that simplifies cloud-management automation by reducing configuration to data (instead of code) — making it easier to maintain, discover, and use. Idem is a complement to the open source project Salt (created by SaltStack, which VMware acquired in October of 2020). While Salt was built to automate the process of systems configuration (such as databases and applications running inside virtual machines), Idem automates cloud configuration, settings, user management, and resource creation. If you’ve used Salt, you’ll find Idem familiar and easy to navigate. Together, Idem and Salt form a full automation solution.
