AUTOMATING INFINIDAT STORAGE SOLUTIONS WITH ANSIBLE
To increase business velocity, large enterprises are moving toward automation for all aspects of their IT infrastructure, and data storage is no exception. As part of a comprehensive suite of host integrations, INFINIDAT’s native Ansible modules make it simple to manage InfiniBox™ file and block storage in Ansible environments.
INFINIDAT Ansible modules provide simple management tools for the following InfiniBox entities:
