Why Red Hat Ansible Engine?

While the upstream Ansible community is known for fast-moving innovations, many enterprises require a more secure, stable and reliable approach. With Ansible Engine, organizations can access the tools and innovations available from the underlying Ansible technology in a hardened, enterprise-grade manner. Ansible Engine relies on the massive, global community behind the Ansible project, and adds in the capabilities and assurance from Red Hat that your business requires in order to comfortably adopt organization-wide automation, and at any scale you can bring.

 

Community vs. Enterprise

Both the Ansible project and Ansible Engine are open source technologies. The Ansible project is built by the community (ansible.com/community) for the benefit of the community. Ansible Engine is developed by Red Hat with the explicit intent of being used as an enterprise IT platform.

I had the Ansible playbooks running in about 3 days on our entire production stack with 15 different microservices. It was really easy once you have the templates in hand.

Automation for Everything

Ansible Engine automates the operating systems, infrastructure platforms, network devices, and clouds you’re already using. Whether you’re automating Windows, Linux, UNIX, AWS, Azure, VMware, Red Hat® Virtualization (to name a few), Ansible Engine will help your environments run more efficiently, and give you a clear pathway to tomorrow’s technologies like SDN, containers, and whatever else comes next-- and as always, no agents required.
