First, server infrastructure. Now, network infrastructure. The same benefits of Ansible seen on compute nodes can now be extended to the network nodes.
Gone are the days of hand-typing commands into network devices one by one. Manage your network infrastructure using Ansible throughout the entire production life cycle:
Ansible’s simple automation framework means that previously isolated network administrators can finally speak the same language of automation as the rest of the IT organization, extending the capabilities of Ansible to include native support for both legacy and open network infrastructure devices. Network devices and systems can now be included in an organization's overall automation strategy for a holistic approach to application workload management.
Automation helps network teams leverage tribal knowledge in a standardized framework with consistent and predictable outcomes.
Senior Principal Engineer, Ansible
Ansible is not an all-or-nothing solution - use it where you really need it. Changes can be incremental or wholesale. Start small, think big.
Ensure ongoing steady state on a schedule, provide role-based access controls to specific teams, and manage dynamic network inventory via a RESTful API for additional external third-party integrations.
Ansible is the most popular open source automation tool on GitHub today with more than a quarter million downloads per month. With over 2,900+ contributors submitting new modules all the time, rest assured that what you are automating is covered in Ansible already, or will be very soon.
