Automation with Ansible

IT as Planned


The examples given here only show a small part of what Ansible is capable of with very little overhead. The structure of the playbooks follows familiar shell commands and constructs fairly closely – system administrators should be familiar with them. This approach keeps the learning curve very low for your initial steps.

The documentation is excellent and you can look forward to a huge variety of integrated tasks on which to build. These tasks include database setups, several package management variants, simple and complex file management, conditional execution based on the results of the previous tasks, and many other things. In combination with a powerful Jinja2 template syntax, there is virtually nothing you can't do with Ansible.
