Ansible is an open-source solution for the automation of development (Dev) and operations (Ops) functions in modern enterprise applications. It is funded by Red Hat and offers a simplistic approach to integrating software development technologies and complex deployment systems. The Ansible community project is also employable along with other Red Hat platforms for the optimization of current workflows and implementation of CI/CD principles in IT automation.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at DevOps engineers, developers, and SysOps administrators who wish to maximize the tools and features made available through the Ansible project for the advancement of organizational IT infrastructures and processes.

Simultaneously, they can utilize the opportunity to carry out complex Ansible implementations for large-scale applications while employing its open-sourced tower for optimized DevOps management and collaboration functions.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Install and configure Ansible along with other open-source tools and resources.
  • Establish a centralized system for DevOps management using Ansible project features.
  • Operate automation tools and advanced resources of Ansible to achieve CI/CD approach.
  • Execute better SysOps methods using Ansible's collaborative features for management of larger teams.
  • Enhance DevOps tasks execution within the organization and optimize existing ones.
  • Integrate Ansible with external platforms and leverage other Ansible tools for the organization's advantage.
