Do we have anyone on this list that have reasonable experience with

We have database rpms which provide running database servers for our systems.
They are trivial specs that just do simple stuff like...
chkconfig mysqld on
service mysqld start
But, they are invaluable in that it's done the same install on every server in our
network. If they were done well they also have hooks into iptables and whatever else was
needed to secure the system. (this is where roles come in role:intranet vs role:internet)
I'd love to have this capability in the base release. So, I would not have to manage
these myself and as I've stated many times: I am no expert in databases nor security.
