Ansible® Control Node Server on CentOS Server 8.3

Ansible is an agentless automation tool that you install on a control node. From the control node, Ansible manages machines and other devices remotely (by default, over the SSH protocol). Unlike Puppet or Chef, you dont have to set up a client-server environment before using Ansible. You can manage multiple hosts from a central location.

Ansible is a radically simple IT automation system. It handles configuration management, application deployment, cloud provisioning, ad-hoc task execution, network automation, and multi-node orchestration. Ansible makes complex changes like zero-downtime rolling updates with load balancers easy. Manage servers on Azure, other cloud platforms and on prem.

Ansible Features:

  • Configuration Management - Easily manage all of your servers. Change the configuration of an application, OS, or device; start and stop services; install or update applications; implement a security policy; or perform a wide variety of other configuration tasks.
  • Application Deployment - Make DevOps easier by automating the deployment of internally developed applications to your production systems.
  • Orchestration - Ansible uses automated workflows, provisioning, and more to make orchestrating tasks easy
  • Security and Compliance - Sitewide security policies (such as firewall rules or locking down users) can be implemented along with other automated processes
  • Cloud Provisioning- You can provision cloud platforms, virtualized hosts, network devices, and bare-metal servers.
  • Modules - Modules are like small programs that Ansible pushes out from a control machine to all the nodes or remote hosts.
  • Plugins - Ansible comes with a number of its plugins, but you can write your own as well
  • Inventories - All the machines youre using with Ansible (the control machine plus nodes) are listed in a single simple file, along with their IP addresses, databases, servers, and so on
  • Playbooks - A playbook is like a recipe or an set of instructions which tells Ansible what work it has to do when it connect to new machine.
  • APIs - Various APIs (application programming interfaces) are available so you can extend Ansible’s connection types
  • Ansible Server Support

    Ansible Control Node server support is from Setup Ansible Server on Azure
