Infrastructure as Code is a start—but it’s not enough

To make infrastructure management more efficient and less error-prone, many organizations have adopted an Infrastructure as Code (IaC) approach, which involves managing and provisioning through code instead of manual processes. IaC makes it possible to automate time-consuming tasks, but scaling IaC across teams and environments requires a unified, flexible automation solution.

Spend less time managing and more time innovating

Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform ensures consistent configuration of infrastructure workloads, while also deploying and maintaining your systems, wherever they are—on-premise, in the cloud, or at the edge. With a user-friendly interface and set of tools, Ansible Automation Platform allows you to efficiently manage diverse enterprise use cases, saving resources and freeing your IT teams to focus on the future.
