Ansible gives businesses a competitive edge with highly flexible automation. With Anisible, you can ensure your systems are all in the desired state.
Ansible works with Linux and Windows operating systems and also firewalls, routers and switches. There are so many plugins available that it’s hard to imagine a system that isn’t accounted for.
The Ansible philosophy is to describe a state that we want a system to be in and Ansible will make it happen. We can then run Ansible on that system at any time to ensure the state is as we want.
Ansible is agent-less. The system administration using Ansible creates a play-book, points Ansible at one or many remote systems and Ansible takes care of the rest.
Ansible works great with Amazon’s AWS cloud environment allowing us to create a virtual private cloud, create resources within that VPC and make changes later as our clients needs change.
