For now, in my opinion your term of "brute force" describes the free and cheap solutions for automated deployment rather well. Better software costs money, and the best solution ignores the market 
which has less than 5000 nodes. For now, that is the situation of the playing field. Today, your best option is to assemble tools and scripts together based on your environment in an effort to make 
your job a bit easier. Such implementations become highly tied to the LAN they were developed in, thus you will not find code out there that fits well and just drops into your LAN. Grab ideas, make 
some dust, and never forget that the sun will be out tomorrow! :-)
