Connect your clouds using a strategic automation platform

Every hybrid cloud incorporates some degree of workload portability, orchestration, and management across diverse environments. Whether your hybrid cloud takes an infrastructure-first approach—like a public cloud attached to your private cloud; multiple public clouds; or some combination of bare-metal, virtual, and cloud environments—or is a hosted cloud-native application, Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform can manage, coordinate, and operationalize them under a single set of processes and policies.

Public clouds

Automate infrastructure and configuration across multiple cloud providers—from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Microsoft Azure; Google Cloud Platform and more.

Private clouds

Automate physical and virtual infrastructure. Connect on-prem environments and workloads to cloud infrastructure and cloud-native services.

Cloud-native workloads

Use Ansible Automation Platform with Red Hat OpenShift to automate the deployment and management of containerized solutions across cloud infrastructure.

Automate your platforms of choice

Unlock the potential of any cloud environment.

 

 

You’re already at the edge. Now, automate it.

Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform uses containerization to distribute and run automation across environments. This design makes running automation in environments with limited resources possible—letting you automate better at the edge.

Operationalize

Get a view into everything—what's running where. Automatically access cloud-native applications and cloud provider capabilities to oversee underlying IT infrastructure, manage and configure cloud instances, and troubleshoot.

Orchestrate

Manage, track, and optimize cloud operations through a single interface—without having to navigate between multiple providers' domain-specific tools. Deploy, retire, coordinate, and migrate cloud instances with reusable automation workflows.

Govern

Automate governance policies to set up common experiences across clouds, schedule enforcements across geographic (or virtual) locations, turn off or reallocate unused resources, move and copy resources off clouds, and more.

Deployment options

The flexibility of Ansible Automation Platform starts with where you deploy it. Now you can get Ansible Automation Platform as a managed application on Microsoft Azure or a self-managed offering available via the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. They run on your cloud, with support from Red Hat. And billing is integrated with your cloud provider so you get one bill—and credit toward your committed spend. We also offer self-managed options for on-premise and cloud locations so you can purchase Ansible Automation Platform from Red Hat and deploy it in your cloud or in your datacenter.
