Red Hat System Administration III : Linux Automation and Ansible

Red hat System Administration III Ansible


What makes Ansible the most in-demand automation tool in most organizations? 

It can be used to manage many different types of systems, including servers running Linux, Microsoft Windows, or UNIX, and network devices. Also, the Ansible Playbook is the first human-readable automation language that can be read and written across the IT-sphere. Ansible playbooks help IT staff program applications, services, server nodes, or other devices without the manual overhead of creating everything from scratch. Whether you’re a technical employee in the company or not, you can still use it as a common language to describe your IT infrastructure.


Here are some benefits of using Ansible :

  • It is a free open-source tool
  • You don’t need any special coding skills to use Ansible’s playbooks as it is very simple and easy to use
  • It simplifies highly complex IT workflows
  • It is very flexible and lets you orchestrate the entire application environment no matter where it’s deployed
  • You don’t need to install any other software on the client systems you want to automate
  • It frees up space on your server because you don’t need to install any extra software

If this is something you are interested in, we have the perfect course for you.
