An Introduction To Ansible For Beginners

Posted By :Ashish Kumar |30th April 2020

Ansible is a well-recognized open-source software provisioning, IT configuration management, deployment and orchestration tool used in Python application development. It helps us provide large productivity gains to a wide variety of automation challenges. It uses two types of servers that are nodes and controlling machine and it uses the SSH approach to deploy the modules to nodes without any specific downtime. It has the capability to manage more than 100 nodes in one single system.

 

It is mainly used for automation that is a crucial part of any software development process. The Ansible platform used in managing various IT infrastructure and it is also used for deploying software applications to remote nodes in a very simple and easy way. It follows a simple setup procedure and does not depend on any additional software, servers, or client daemons and it manages nodes over SSH and is parallel by default.

 

What Ansible Can Do?

 

Provisioning

It is the first step in automating any operational life cycle of the application that is automating the provisioning of the infrastructure. It is a process of setting-up configurations, allocating memory, disk space, etc. It means creating a suitable environment for the application to make it live.

 

Configuration Management

It is a platform that automates the storage, servers, and networking, and when we configure these components then difficult manual tasks become repeatable and less vulnerable to error. It establishes and maintains consistency of the Application performance by recording and updating detailed information that describes an enterprise’s hardware and software.

 

Application Deployment

Ansible provides the simplest way to deploy your applications in a particular environment without any downtime. It gives the power to deploy multi-tier applications reliably and consistently, all from one common framework. It also allows us to write a line of code to automate the deployment process. 

 

Security and Compliance

It refers to the security policy in Ansible, scanning, and remediation of site-wide security policy can be integrated into other automated processes and it will be integral in everything that is deployed. It means that it allows you to configure your security details once in a control machine and it will be embedded in all other nodes automatically.

 

Orchestration

Ansible provides Orchestration for aligning the business request with the applications and infrastructure. It defines the protocol levels through automated workflows, provisioning, and change management. It helps to creates an application-aligned infrastructure that can be scaled up or down based on the needs of each application. 

 

Conclusion

Ansible is a popular SaaS application development tool in that provides a simple and powerful automation platform to deploy applications using ssh without any downtime. With the help of this tool, one can manage and configure software applications very easily. It is very efficient tool means Its modules work via JSON, Ansible is extensible with modules written in a programming language that is easy to learn.
