The simple automation solution
Ansible is the simplest solution for automating applications, complete systems and your IT infrastructure. Ansible makes daily tasks in your Unix and Linux environments a breeze. Every problem has to be solved only once and then rolled out as a playbook on many systems.
Powerful workflow configuration
All configuration information is collected in so-called Ansible Playbooks in an easy to understand description language and rolled out to hosts stored in the host inventory. For this purpose, only a connection to the systems to be configured is necessary and you’re ready to go.
Ansible works in push mode and requires no further installation on the individual systems besides SSH and Python. So you can get started without further preparation with Ansible, as the control of a simple workstation is sufficient.

Ansible & Foreman
The perfect integration
Foreman – the lifecycle management tool for physical and virtual servers. The Foreman is an open source project that helps administrators manage their systems throughout the lifecycle, from provisioning and configuration to orchestration and monitoring.
Using Ansible and Foreman’s Smart Proxy Architecture, you can automate regular tasks and roll out applications at the push of a button – with bare-metal servers as well as VMs in the cloud.
