Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform, redesigned from the previous generation of the platform, helps customers create, manage, and scale their automation across hybrid and multicloud environments more efficiently. Ansible Automation Platform 2.2 continues to build on the new container architecture that debuted with Ansible Automation Platform 2.0 while incorporating several experience enhancements, many based on direct customer input.
