Automate Everything with Red Hat Ansible


Your apps have to live somewhere. Whether you’re PXE-booting and kickstarting bare-metal servers, creating virtual machines (VMs), or deploying public, private, or hybrid cloud instances from templates, Red Hat Ansible Automation helps streamline the process. And once you’ve created the right playbooks, a few more steps lets you easily provide self-service for teams that need to set up their own environments. When you’re managing the datacenter, it’s not just the OS you need to deploy. Ansible’s extensive library of built-in modules, plus its easy extensibility allows you to use the same simple playbook language not just for configuring your servers, but also for your networks, firewalls, and more.

Configuration Managment

It’s likely you currently manage your systems with a collection of scripts and ad-hoc practices curated by a talented team of administrators. Or perhaps you’re using an automation framework that requires a bit too much of your time to maintain. Virtualization and cloud technology have increased the complexity and the number of systems to manage is only growing. You need a consistent, reliable and secure way to manage the environment – but many solutions have gone way too far the other direction, actually adding complexity to an already complicated problem. You need a system that builds on existing concepts you already understand and doesn’t require a large team of developers to maintain.

Application Deployment

Ansible is the simplest way to deploy your applications. It gives you the power to deploy multi-tier applications reliably and consistently, all from one common framework. You can configure needed services as well as push application artifacts from one common system. Rather than writing custom code to automate your systems, your team writes simple task descriptions that even the newest team member can understand on first read – saving not only up-front costs, but making it easier to react to change over time.
