What Exactly Is Ansible?
Ansible can be defined as an open source IT software provisioning, application deployment & configuration management tool in the DevOps ecosystem. It works towards improving the enterprises production outcomes by deploying automation wherever possible. Ansible is well capable of automating the enterprises entire application environment.
Ansible helps in the creation of groups of machines, lays down the steps for configuring these machines describe. It also depicts what sort of actions need to be taken on these machines. The specific commands to perform a relevant task are assigned by Ansible from a central location.
Benefits Of Using Ansible-
The syntax for Ansible is quite simple. Being written in YAML understanding its syntax is a lot easier as YAML is a human readable language. So, working on Ansible doesn’t require much of coding experience. Installing Ansible is also very simple & it performs all the assigned tasks in order so following them wouldn’t be difficult task.
The other prominent aspect of Ansible is that it is agentless. The term agent less is an indication that Ansible doesn’t require any additional software or firewall ports to be installed. There will not be any upfront infrastructure cost for managing entire systems, network and storage. Also, with Ansible the process of automating the resources can be done right away.
- Highly Efficient
As mentioned earlier, as there isn’t any need for extra software on your servers, this simply means that there is a good scope for adding additional resources for your applications. Another feature being that, its modules can be written in a programming language which you already know.
