Ansible Automation Platform on edge and public cloud

Getting started

Ansible Automation Platform for edge

Edge automation with Ansible Automation Platform takes IT automation out of the datacenter and into edge devices and workloads that are actually being automated. Many devices are in use at remote locations, where there may not be IT staff available to maintain and configure them. Ansible Automation Platform can help you centrally automate the provisioning of devices and processes far from your infrastructure’s core.


Ansible Automation Platform on public clouds

To support cloud-native development, Ansible Automation Platform is now available on Microsoft Azure as a managed offering and on AWS and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) as a self-managed offering supported by Red Hat. These new offerings provide complete Ansible Automation Platform capabilities, including integration with native Azure, AWS, and GCP services and integrated billing for added flexibility and speed.

The Ansible open source project

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.



Ansible developers (including community contributors) add new features, fix bugs, and update code in many different repositories in the Ansible community. The ansible/ansible repository contains the code for basic features and functions, such as copying module code to managed nodes. This code is also known as ansible-base.


AWX is the upstream project from which the Red Hat Ansible Tower offering is ultimately derived. AWX is designed to be a frequently released, fast-moving project where all new development happens.


Galaxy provides pre-packaged units of work known to Ansible as roles and collections. Content from roles and collections can be referenced in Ansible playbooks and immediately put to work. You'll find content for provisioning infrastructure, deploying applications, and all of the tasks you do every day.
