Your IT environment is much more than just a collection of servers and configurations. Ansible was designed and built to ensure that everyone in your IT organization can start automating their tasks in ways that were just not possible before.
We believe that in order to be effective, everyone in the IT organization needs to play a part in automating their view of the environment. The benefits are clear: by automating the repetition out of their daily lives, IT team members are able to focus on more interesting value-added tasks.
Regardless of who your infrastructure vendors are, Ansible can help you automate all your infrastructure from bare metal to virtualization - all without having to expose credentials, or teach your users the specific UIs and APIs for each provider.
Ansible supports industry-leading virtualization platforms that you’re already using today, including:
Ansible supports the operating systems that keep your business running, including:
It’s time that the network teams got to participate in the DevOps revolution. Ansible brings its simplicity and agentless architecture to network automation in a way that enables IT organizations to finally include network teams in DevOps initiatives while simultaneously gaining better control and understanding of how their existing networks are configured and managed.
While we’re “automating all the things," IT organizations are looking for ways to containerize all the things. Ansible can help by standardizing, controlling, and automating the build process for containers, as well as ensuring there’s a sane and predictable (as well as supportable) lifecycle from developer workstation to test to QA to production. Ansible takes the guesswork out of the likely question: “Where did that container come from, and what’s it running?” Today, that means building and managing Docker, and LXC images, but also the next big thing none of us have even heard of yet.
Are you already deploying entire applications into a cloud, or just starting to dabble? Either way, Ansible has deep and broad capabilities across the cloud ecosystem-- on or off-prem, or a bit of both, Ansible can seamlessly automate in an increasingly hybrid world.
Everyone defines DevOps differently. Here at Ansible, we believe communication and collaboration are central to the idea. But how do you solve the challenge of bringing together separate teams and their chosen tools, while encouraging communication and collaboration?
Ansible enables the spirit of DevOps by connecting teams and tools to automate the workflows in your day-to-day operations.
We support integrations across the DevOps toolchain; including the areas of development, integration/test, deployment and monitoring/analytics. Here is a sample of our capabilities:
Development: Github, Atlassian Bitbucket Pipelines, Gitlabs, Vagrant...
Integration/Test: Jenkins, Travis CI, Teamcity...
Deployment: Cloud Providers, Containers, ServiceNow, Systems, Virt Platforms...
