Features and benefits

Better than the basics

Ansible Automation Platform doesn’t just manage configurations or deploy applications—it’s a workflow engine that runs lots of different systems in concert.

Top-level orchestration

Orchestration capabilities come built into every Ansible Automation Platform instance, which lets you package other tools, platforms, or cloud instances and organize or automate them.

Perfect for clouds

Ansible Automation Platform is used by Rackspace, CSC, HP, Cisco, and IBM to orchestrate OpenStack® rollouts. More than 135 Red Hat Ansible Certified Content Collections provide true interoperability and support for use cases across vendors and clouds.

Automation controller

Delegate complex orchestrations to whomever needs it with a user interface, RESTful application programming interface, role-based access control (RBAC), workflows, and continuous integration and continuous delivery integrations.

Single syntax

Admins don’t need to remember multiple syntaxes thanks to Ansible Automation Platform’s library of modules. Use the native YAML syntax to orchestrate different conductors in different environments.

Task ordering

Ansible Automation Platform’s clear syntax and task-based nature help execute automation efforts from different providers in the right order and with proper caveats.
