Getting started with Event Driven Automation and Ansible Lightspeed

IT organizations are continually looking for ways to deliver IT services to their businesses more efficiently. Automation is key. It can help teams automate routine tasks so there is more time for innovation, ensuring consistent change and helping create overall resilience. With Event-Driven Ansible, teams can now complete important tasks automatically, whether resetting a router in the middle of the night or automatically responding to conditions when they occur with speed and resilience. This popular, new technology makes it easier for teams to flexibly build this type of automatic response into their operations. It is flexible from source to rule to action and can be used by teams without an extended project or deep coding skills. In additon, we explore at a high level, what efficiencies that Ansible Lightspeed (Generative AI) will bring to developing enterprise automation.

Accelerate hybrid cloud automation with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform

Many organizations report hybrid cloud resources that are idle, underused, or over-provisioned, and they may have additional challenges with skill shortages, disparate teams, and the increasing demand to do more with fewer resources.  Red Hat’s hyperscaler cloud offerings, paired with the Ansible Content Collections (out-of-the-box integrations and automation workflows) and provided through the new hybrid cloud automation initiative, can accelerate the adoption of automation and greatly improve its time-to-value. In this session, you will learn how customers use hybrid cloud content (such as our certified integration with Terraform) to automate the full life cycle of their applications, perform cluster provisioning, migrate workloads from on-premise VMware vSphere to Red Hat OpenShift, manage it all at scale from their hyperscaler of choice (such as Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure). We will share real-world examples showing how Ansible Automation Platform can enhance Red Hat OpenShift hybrid cloud architectures.
