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.



Do the right thing in the right cloud. Automatically.

Ansible Automation Platform will help you:


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.


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.


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.
