Getting Started with Ansible – Part 1 of 2 (Jeremy Murrah)


    Looking for part 2 of this demo?

    What is Ansible?

    Ansible is an amazingly flexible tool to manage your infrastructure. It’s a simple IT automation engine that automates cloud provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, intra-service orchestration, and many other IT needs. Ansible allows you configure and manage many computers at once, with ease.

    If you have never touched Ansible, fear not, because this two part video series covers all the major pieces of Ansible. This first video is an intro that will cover how to get started and what are the important pieces to understand. Part 2 covers more of the advanced features and customized code you can create for Ansible.

    Our guest speaker for this talk is Jeremy Murrah, a sysadmin who uses Ansible daily to configure and maintain hundreds of nodes for his employer. Jeremy skillfully shows off the basic features of Ansible, how they work and then highlights some useful modules to extend Ansible even further.
