Outcomes of using Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform


Standardize and unify IT automation

Ansible Automation Platform lets you standardize automation because it works throughout your organization, connecting users across IT domains to streamline orchestration and provide governance for a variety of use cases.

Ansible Automation Platform allows flexibility with your resources by automating provisioning for cloud providers, storage solutions, and infrastructure components. It helps make network management more consistent and expedites security patching and remediation. Use Ansible Content Collections with pre-packaged roles and modules to provision machines, apply base system configurations, and deploy apps.



Automate application deployments

Developers can set up automation to provision, deploy, and manage compute infrastructure across environments. Deploy multi-tier applications reliably and consistently, all from one common framework, and configure needed services and push application artifacts using Ansible Playbooks.

Move software between testing and production environments more quickly by automating processes. This leads to repeatable and reliable deployments across the software delivery cycle, enabling DevOps and managing your CI/CD pipeline.



Deliver automated IT infrastructure

Use Ansible Automation Platform to automate infrastructure provisioning and orchestration, updating and patching systems, installing software, and onboarding users. Create and run reusable infrastructure as code (IaC) with Ansible Playbooks that can automate more extensive workflows, such as full application deployments to production. Get real-time job status updates and use analytics to understand which automation jobs are running successfully and where.
