New modules integrate AWS Identity & Access Management (IAM) with Ansible automation

DURHAM, NC –October 6, 2015 – Ansible, Inc., the leading provider of simple, yet powerful IT automation for the enterprise, today announced the integration of multiple modules designed for greater accessibility and ease of use within Amazon Web Services (AWS). Ansible’s AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) modules will expose new security and access management capabilities to Ansible automation jobs in order to securely control access to AWS services and resources.  Ansible users can now create playbooks that automate tasks like creating AWS users, groups, roles, and policies.

Together Ansible and AWS reduce the risks that are associated with cloud deployments, and enable IT organizations to more effectively manage and deploy cloud environments. Ansible integrates seamlessly with Amazon’s API for managing Amazon resources, and also brings the additional capability of automating tasks at the operating system and application layer, allowing system administrators and developers to automate their entire environment from the individual instance up through a multi-node, multi-service application stack.

“Ansible’s latest modules build on our extensive support for AWS services, letting users manage the cloud the way it’s meant to be managed,” said Tim Gerla, CTO of Ansible. “With over 50 AWS modules and hundreds of customers using AWS, Ansible continues to be a leader in automating cloud deployments and migrations.”

As a result of working with Ansible’s active open source community of almost 1,200 contributors, Ansible 2.0 (now in beta) includes enhanced AWS functionality such as:  

  • Three new modules to enhance and expand VPC support
  • A new DynamoDB module for creating and managing data in Amazon’s NoSQL database
  • New modules for creating and managing ENI interfaces for Amazon machines
  • New support for Amazon Security Tokens (STS) in all Ansible AWS modules 

Ansible now an AWS Advanced Technology Partner

In recognition of Ansible’s breadth and depth of AWS modules and leadership in DevOps and cloud automation, Ansible has been promoted to an AWS Advanced Technology Partner. Come visit Ansible at booth 439 at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas October 6-8, 2015.
