New Case Study: NASA and Ansible Tower

September 17, 2014 by Dan London


In our latest case study we show how NASA uses Ansible Tower to better manage their environment, provide better security as well as to increase efficiency. 

What is your business challenge?

"NASA WESTPRIME’s initial focus was to move roughly 65 applications from a traditional hardware based data center in a rapid time-line to a cloud-based environment. The rapid time-line resulted in many applications being migrated ‘as-is’ to a cloud environment.

This allowed for NASA to gain significant cost savings from the change in infrastructure but did not allow for immediate cloud optimization of the applications and sites. As a result of the rapid migration requirement we had an environment spanning multiple virtual private clouds (VPCs) and AWS accounts that could not be easily managed. This resulted in scenarios where even simple things, like ensuring every system administrator had access to every server, or simple patching, were extremely burdensome."
