“The Ansible Server image is maintained independently. Ansible is an agentless automation tool that is installed on a control node. With the control node, Ansible remotely manages machines and other devices, primarily using the SSH protocol.

Key Ansible Features:

Configuration Management: Easily manage all your servers, change application configurations, configure the OS, enforce security policies, and more.

Application Deployment: Simplify DevOps by automating the deployment of in-house developed applications on your servers.

Orchestration: Ansible streamlines task orchestration through automated workflows and provisioning.

Security and Compliance: Implement site-wide security policies and automate other compliance processes.

Cloud Provisioning: Provision various resources, including cloud platforms, virtualized hosts, network devices, and bare-metal servers.

Modules: Ansible uses modules, which are small programs pushed from the control machine to remote hosts.

Plugins: Ansible comes equipped with various plugins to extend functionality.

Inventories: All machines used with Ansible, including the control machine and nodes, are listed in a single, straightforward file.

Playbooks: Playbooks are akin to recipes or sets of instructions that guide Ansible on what tasks to perform when connecting to a new machine.”
