Why cloud automation is important in a hybrid world

Jump to section

More organizations are undertaking digital transformation, shifting their workloads from private, on premise datacenters and virtual machines (VMs) to public cloud environments and containers. This trend encompasses the move to Software-as-a-service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) models delivered on a range of public, private, hybrid, and multicloud environments. When software, platforms, and infrastructure are spread across public and private cloud environments, it becomes impossible to manage without an automation solution. Most organizations identify multiple cloud environments as a challenge, while only a small number of organizations and large enterprises use a cloud automation solution.

Learn how Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform can simplify hybrid cloud management under a single set of processes and policies to improve consistency, scalability, and speed. In this webinar, we’ll cover the challenges of cloud management, the value automation brings to cloud environments, and how Ansible Automation Platform makes it easy to manage and provision instances, networks, and complete cloud infrastructure, streamlining activities across multiple cloud environments, cloud-native services, and hyperscaler offerings.

Join this webinar to explore:

  • The current state of cloud automation and the challenges the market is facing
  • The value of cloud automation
  • When automation should be hosted on a cloud environment
  • The benefits of Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform for use cases like provisioning and deprovisioning of workloads as well as unique automation workflows focused on individual cloud technologies
