Submitted by OMPRAGASH VISWANATHAN (@ompragash) on Wednesday, 19 June 2019
Ansible is a radically simple IT automation platform that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy. Avoid writing scripts or custom code to deploy and update your applications — automate in a language that approaches plain English, using SSH, with no agents to install on remote systems.
AWX provides a web-based user interface, REST API, and task engine built on top of Ansible.
In this talk we’ll see on how Ansible works and execute tasks and about the features provided by AWX.
