Ansible needs python at remote site. Sure many distros already have python in default installation. But if python is not available (legacy, old, no-auth?) or you prefer shell scripting, than sh-simple-deployer and cdist are good candidates.

I prefer Ansible but it's not a 2 h tool. Only if I want to print Hello World. Ansible manual is vast and I need a lot of the modules and other concepts (roles, yaml, Jinja, etc) to really say "Wow, this is better/faster than scripting". Maybe a week. :-)
