Configuration management with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform
Now more than ever, IT enterprise teams manage a complex array of applications and systems, including clouds, networks, storage, servers, and edge devices. Over time, the introduction of even minor inconsistencies or misconfiguration errors can lead to configuration drift and issues with performance, security, and compliance—and even cause outages.
Automation makes it possible for teams to establish more reliable, consistent IT operations, which can limit downtime and improve return on investment. With Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform, your team can deploy and decommission infrastructure components in just minutes—instead of hours or days—establish and maintain desired configuration states across multiple systems, and ensure compliance.
With access to over 140 certified and validated content collections from more than 60 industry partners, you can quickly start automating common and time-consuming configuration management tasks.
Automation execution environments help ensure your automation runs smoothly and consistently across multiple platforms, whether they're in your datacenter, cloud, or at the edge.
Event-Driven Ansible connects your data, analytics, and service requests to automated actions so that activities—such as responding to an outage or patching a server—can take place in a single, rapid motion.
Ansible Automation Platform performs the work of disparate solutions to establish baseline system settings and helps you reduce drift and downtime through consistent patch management, installations, and updates.
Automation analytics and Red Hat Insights give you full visibility into the performance of your automation. Monitor configuration drift, manage automation tasks, and use Event-Driven Ansible to address problems before they become urgent issues.
Bring your IT operations teams and developers together using a shared language and standardized framework. Open up siloed teams and processes, enabling teams to share configuration management content to boost productivity and efficiency.
