Ansible is an open-source automation tool that simplifies complex IT tasks such as configuration management, application deployment, and orchestration. Developed by Red Hat, Ansible uses a simple, human-readable language called YAML to define automation tasks and an agentless architecture that relies on SSH for remote execution. Companies seeking to streamline their IT operations, reduce manual intervention, and enhance consistency and reliability across their infrastructure rely on Ansible for its simplicity, flexibility, and wide range of supported modules.
Apache CloudStack provides an Ansible module that enables seamless integration with Ansible playbooks, allowing administrators to automate CloudStack tasks and orchestrate complex workflows. This integration facilitates a unified and simplified management experience, enabling the use of Ansible to manage and automate CloudStack resources alongside other infrastructure components. The combination of CloudStack and Ansible empowers organizations to streamline their cloud infrastructure management and enhance operational efficiency through automation.
Easy to learn with an agentless architecture, suitable for diverse automation needs.
