Ok, so based on what's been written here, here is the list of tools
mentioned so far

Inventory (formerly ZipTie) -
NocProject -
Notch -

I've also heard of Gerty, though as far as I understand, it's still
a work in progress:

And another solution is Netdot -
which will do inventory management (at least on Cisco), though
it will rely on Rancid to fetch the configurations.

... I'll try and find the time to write a short summary of features
for each (conf. backup, conf management/provisioning, inventory
management) and post here.
