Set up your infrastructure without any glitches with Ansible

In Detail

Ansible is a simple IT automation engine, that automates cloud provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, intra-service orchestration, and many other IT needs. Designed for multi-tier deployments since day one, Ansible models your IT infrastructure by describing how all your systems interrelate, rather than managing one system at a time.

This Learning Path is comprehensive, hands-on course with discovery of orchestration, DevOps and automation using Ansible. Explore Ansible with cloud services and its AWS provisioning. Understand infrastructure automation and decide what makes Ansible a good choice for your projects. Get started with Ansible through playbooks and organize the automation of infrastructure tasks by building and using roles from Ansible Galaxy. Explore variables and templates to configure application deployments easily.
