CERTIFIED INTEGRATION:

Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform and Aruba

SIMPLIFY NETWORK OPERATIONS WITH ARUBA AND ANSIBLE

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, is a leading provider of next-generation wireless and wired networking solutions that help enterprises capitalize on business opportunities at the Edge. 

Aruba is committed to helping customers advance their network automation frameworks. As part of that commitment, we’ve partnered with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform to make automation of network operations simpler, from day 0 provisioning to day 2 maintenance. 

ANSIBLE SUPPORT FOR ARUBA CX SWITCHING

The Aruba CX Switching Portfolio elevates the IT operator experience through powerful automation and analytics. These capabilities are enabled by AOS-CX, a microservices-based operating system built on cloud-native principles, which makes it easy to deploy and manage wired networks using certified Ansible modules and playbooks

  • AOS-CX leverages switch APIs in Ansible modules for faster execution compared to traditional CLI (modules are also available for CLI) 
  • Authorize module calls by utilizing TACACS support in the APIs
  • Access any data in Aruba CX switches using APIs 
  • Get started with example workflow playbooks for provisioning switches
  • Easily configure features like VLANs, ACLs, L2/L3 interfaces and routes 

ANSIBLE SUPPORT FOR ARUBAOS WIRELESS

ArubaOS is the network operating system for Aruba Mobility Masters, Mobility Controllers and controller-managed campus access points (APs). With industry-leading software innovation, ArubaOS is engineered to deliver enterprise-grade performance and mission-critical reliability for enterprise deployments of all sizes. It’s innovative hierarchical configuration management, centralized at the Mobility Master, makes it easy to deploy and manage wireless networks using certified Ansible modules and playbooks.

  • ArubaOS Ansible modules leverage APIs on the Mobility Master for easier network operation automation
  • Mobility Master supports TACACS based authorization for API calls
  • Support for certificate validation in the modules to ensure secure API calls
  • Explore several example playbooks for typical wireless LAN configurations

IMPROVE IT AGILITY AND LOWER COSTS

Aruba and Ansible empower operators to deploy networks quicker, so IT can meet business requirements faster. All Aruba products support open-standard APIs, bringing extensibility and ease of integration with Ansible and other external platforms. Accelerate deployments, orchestrate changes for thousands of devices at once, and reduce costs tied to manual, error-prone work.

Ansible bridges the gap between programmer and network engineer by making network automation simple, powerful, and easily integrated into any campus, branch, or data center environment.
