Ansible is one of the most popular tools in the open source orchestration and automation space. This simple, agent-less tool can conquer almost any automation task. Whether you want to manage an entire cloud region, configure network devices, or orchestrate configuration changes across Linux or Windows machines, Ansible is up to the challenge.
In this course, you will get started with Ansible 2.0, including its installation, the problems it solves, and more. We will also walk through creating your very first playbooks. You’ll understand the power of variables and quickly be able to manage environments and implement strategies. You will find out how to integrate with different cloud platforms and be introduced to Ansible Galaxy and Tower, which are Ansible’s enterprise tooling for supporting large-scale infrastructure.
By the end of this course, you will be well versed in the basics of Ansible and be able to automate your organizational infrastructure easily.
About the Author
David Cohen
I’ve been a system administrator, platform engineer, devops engineer, and software developer in everything from small businesses to growing companies (100+ employees) and large tech/engineering firms (10,000+ employees).
Most of my work has centered around Linux and Unix system administration, web security, and software development in Python, Ruby, Javascript, and Go. I’ve also done stranger things like helping to design two Tier-4 datacenters and being an Infantryman (not at the same time).
On my tutorialinux YouTube channel, I’ve helped tens of thousands of people learn the basics (and not-so-basics) of system administration, devops, and software engineering.
