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

RANCID - http://www.shrubbery.net/rancid/
Inventory (formerly ZipTie) - http://inventory.alterpoint.com/
NocProject - http://redmine.nocproject.org/projects/noc/wiki
Notch - http://code.google.com/p/notch/
Cisco-Conf-Repository http://cisco-conf-rep.sourceforge.net/

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

https://github.com/ssinyagin/gerty

And another solution is Netdot - http://netdot.uoregon.edu/
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.

Cheers,
Phil
