Running Ansible at Scale


Due to Ansible's shallow learning curve, its use in an organization tends to grow from the bottom up because engineers and system administrators are able to quickly achieve their goals without needing to spend much time mastering a new tool. 

As more and more critical tasks are automated with Ansible and more team members are writing and running playbooks, a clear path to scaling from a handful of admins running Ansible from their workstations to a powerful and robust automation solution the company can depend on is required.

In this session, you will learn how to scale Ansible and Ansible Tower to run against thousands of nodes. This talk will cover Ansible core performance tips and development workflow as well as Ansible Tower specific features such as job slicing, clustering, smart inventory, and instance groups.
