Ansible Course

Ansible is a tool for management and automation development, suitable for various environments including Linux. The primary users of this platform are mainly IT professionals or DevOps personnel. It's an innovative tool that simplifies and performs complex tasks, such as development and automation, in a relatively simple and fast manner while maintaining SSH security.

Characteristics of Ansible

Ansible serves a wide range of purposes:

  • Managing highly complex configurations.
  • Performing software installations and deploying various services in the cloud.
  • Developing automated tools.
  • Running Playbooks multiple times in succession.
  • Ansible allows testing the application at each stage of development and can effectively simulate activity from the boot and initialization stages.

In fact, almost any task in the DevOps world can be accomplished using Ansible, utilizing a variety of tools familiar to every Linux user and operable by them.

Advantages of Ansible Configuration Management

One of the major advantages of the software Ansible is that it does not require the setup of a central management server. In fact, every key holder working with the software can receive unique permissions for their specific role. This enables DevOps personnel to be integrated into the development process with access only to relevant matters, which streamlines activities and enhances the speed at which additional factors can be incorporated into product development tasks.

Another significant advantage is the security of the software, which is based on SSH. All communication is secure through it, and it is easy to install and work with passwords and key management that can be easily installed at the edge system.

An additional benefit is the ability to group and subgroup servers according to needs. For example, all servers of a specific version or type such as AWS or Ubuntu can be divided and subjected to tests and processes based on predefined commands. Ansible supports any programming language that supports JSON, such as Ruby, Bash, Python, and more.

In summary, Ansible boasts several key advantages such as open-source code, rapid installation process, security, process management like cloud installation and configuration management, automation, and more. These advantages have turned the platform into a valuable tool for DevOps personnel, simplifying processes significantly. Therefore, it's important to have automation or DevOps as part of every IT professional's toolkit.
