Orchestrate the Network from End to End Using Ansible

Aruba is an innovative edge networking company with modern software. Aruba wireless and wired solutions cover from the campus to data center core network.

All Aruba products support open-standard APIs and interoperate with most vendors. The partnership between Aruba and Ansible is perfect for IT automation and makes it easier for customers to build and manage multi-vendor networks. 

Ansible modules for AOS-CX help customers efficiently onboard and manage their networks.

  • AOS-CX modules leverage switch APIs in Ansible modules for faster execution compared to traditional CLI modules 
  • Ansible modules are also available for CLI commands 
  • All module calls can be authorized by utilizing TACACS support in the APIs
  • The database-driven architecture of AOS-CX allows for any data in the switch to be accessed using APIs 
  • To get started with automation faster, IT can use example workflow playbooks for provisioning switches
  • IT can easily configure various features like VLANs, ACLs, L2/L3 interfaces and routes using Aruba modules 

Be More Agile and Lower Cost

The Ansible automation framework empowers IT to deploy and bring up networks more quickly, so IT can meet business requirements faster. All Aruba modules use a REST API for communication, which makes for a faster and more reliable automation framework. IT has the ability to add, change or delete the configurations for hundreds or thousands of devices in a short period of time—and eliminate error-prone manual work. And with Red Hat Ansible Tower, IT gains secure access to inventory data, user role creation and job scheduling.

Ansible bridges the gap between programmer and network engineer by making network automation simple, powerful, and easily integrated into any Campus and Data Center environment.
