Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform
Simple IT automation anyone can use
Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform allows developers to set up automation to provision, deploy, and manage compute infrastructure across cloud, virtual, and physical environments. Common use cases for Ansible Automation Platform are: end to end workflow orchestration, application deployment, continuous delivery, configuration management, infrastructure provisioning, and security threat response.
Developers of Ansible content, Ansible content creators as we call them, create automation via simple, YAML-based syntax files called playbooks and plugins written in any language of their choice (Python, Bash, etc.). Creators then package their content into collections to be distributed via Ansible Galaxy to the larger community, or internally via their localized Automation Hub.
Ansible simplifies automation
Hosted services allow developers to simplify automation and show how Ansible makes managing application infrastructure more effective.
This is the official location for developers to discover and download Ansible Content Collections. All content in Automation Hub is backed by support from Red Hat and its partners to deliver additional reassurance for the most demanding environments.
Pre-composed modules and roles around specific topic areas bring flexibility and control. These collections are a consistent content delivery mechanism that include pre-built automation content from certified partners and Red Hat. Developers can also still publish content to Ansible Galaxy if they want to share their content with the Ansible community.
Automation Analytics allows developers to reveal the most used Ansible Playbooks, modules, and deployment pass/fail rates from an intuitive dashboard. Analytics also show what is being automated across developer team environments with a full view of how the automation is being utilized.
Automation services catalog
Automation services catalog gives developers and business users access to the four areas where their automation lives - across physical, virtual, cloud and container environments. This offers developers repeatable automation to build environments or deploy applications in either UI or in pipeline.
The Ansible community is open source
Red Hat’s product development cycle has always been rooted in open source and the communities that help to steer Red Hat’s products’ direction. Like Fedora is the upstream project for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the projects listed here are the upstream versions of products that make up the Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform.
