Provisioning with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform
Automated infrastructure provisioning is the first step in automating the operational life cycle of your applications.
From traditional servers to the latest serverless or function-as-a-service environments, Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform can provision cloud platforms, virtualized hosts and hypervisors, applications, network devices, and bare-metal servers. It can then connect these deployed nodes to storage, add them to a load balancer, patch them for security, or perform any number of other operational tasks executed by separate teams.
Ansible Automation Platform is the single platform in your process pipeline for deploying infrastructure and connecting it, simplifying the deployment and day-to-day management of your infrastructure.
Underneath virtualization and cloud platforms is bare metal, and you still need to provision it depending on the situation. Ansible Automation Platform integrates with many datacenter management tools to both invoke and enact the provisioning steps required.
From hypervisors to virtual storage and virtual networks, you can use Ansible Automation Platform to simplify the experience of cross platform management. The large selection of available integrations gives you flexibility and choice to manage your diverse environment.
Ansible Automation Platform can provision and manage storage in your infrastructure. Whether it's software-defined storage, cloud-based storage, or even hardware storage appliances, you can find a module to benefit from Ansible’s common, powerful language.
One of the easiest ways to deploy, configure, and orchestrate OpenStack® private cloud is by using Ansible Automation Platform. It can be used to provision the underlying infrastructure, install services and applications, add compute hosts, and more.
