Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform

Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform is a foundation for building and operating automation across an organization. The platform includes all the tools needed to implement enterprise-wide automation.

Ansible is designed to be very simple, reliable, and consistent for configuration management.
Ansible is the simplest way to deploy your applications. It gives you the power to deploy multi-tier applications reliably and consistently, all from one common framework. You can configure needed services as well as push application artifacts from one common system.

It gives developers and business users access to automation resources where they live—across physical, virtual, cloud, and container environments. It provide enterprise and line-of-business users with the automation governance they need to meet compliance and procurement requirements.

It lets operations team members analyze and aggregate data, and generate reports on the status of your automation deployments. A ROI calculator helps advance your automation program by enabling teams to show the time and resources they’ve saved using automation.

Ansible provides a more efficient, streamlined base to automate security practices and bring together the different tools used in security activities.

Ansible manages machines in an agent-less manner. There is never a question of how to upgrade remote daemons or the problem of not being able to manage systems because daemons are uninstalled. Because OpenSSH is one of the most peer-reviewed open source components, security exposure is greatly reduced. Ansible is decentralized–it relies on your existing OS credentials to control access to remote machines. If needed, Ansible can easily connect with Kerberos, LDAP, and other centralized authentication management systems.

Ansible’s main goals are simplicity and ease-of-use. It also has a strong focus on security and reliability, featuring a minimum of moving parts, usage of OpenSSH for transport (with other transports and pull modes as alternatives), and a language that is designed around auditability by humans–even those not familiar with the program.
