Orchestration with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform
Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform comes with prebuilt orchestration capabilities to organize automation tasks across all kinds of applications, platforms, and providers—helping you arrange automation tasks (and tools) in specific ways to achieve particular results.
Ansible Automation Platform doesn’t just manage configurations or deploy applications—it’s a workflow engine that runs lots of different systems in concert.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
