Accelerating with Ansible

Download to read offline

We've added the presentation used by John Walter, Solution Architect for Red Hat's Training and Certification team, from our Accelerating with Ansible webinar. He discussed the emergence of radically simple Ansible automation and answered questions from attendees. Learn how Ansible automates cloud provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, intra-service orchestration, and many other IT needs. Also learn how Ansible is designed for multi-tier deployments from day one and how Ansible models your IT infrastructure by describing how all your systems inter-relate, rather than just managing one system at a time.
