Spacewalk is great, but be prepared for some significant configuration
time and energy.  Also, it requires Oracle (postgres is in progress
last I checked).  The "free" version of Oracle has a single processor

I'd say about 20 systems is the threshold for when the up-front config
time starts paying off.
