Ansible is a radically simple IT automation engine that automates cloud provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, intra-service orchestration, and many other IT needs.

In this training, attendees will learn how to:

  • Create inventory lists and playbooks to configure systems using Ansible
  • Use various Ansible modules in playbooks
  • Integrate the use of Git to provide version control for configuration.
