Red Hat Ansible Tower
As enterprises move to adopt a hybrid cloud infrastructure spanning on premise and public cloud platforms, with applications based on containers, microservices and traditional frameworks, the scale and complexity of IT operations balloons. Sprawling systems are hard to develop, deploy, and maintain. Business demands only increase complexity, and IT teams struggle with management, availability and cost. Scalable, agile automation is required to keep up with today’s operational challenges. With Red Hat Ansible Tower, organizations can get past the complexity and streamline their processes. Red Hat Ansible Tower internally uses the popular open source Ansible automation framework to help teams more effectively manage systems and optimize multi-tier deployments while adding control, security and delegation capabilities. The technology also provides a single language for DevOps practices across your organization. For many organizations, separate IT teams manage on-premises IT vs. cloud services, each with their own sets of Ansible Playbooks. To maximize the benefits of automation across distributed infrastructure, these organizations are now moving beyond just implementing automation to creating an automation “center of excellence.” A center of excellence helps to provide consistent automation across the enterprise, sharing common solutions and accepted strategies as automation is introduced into new areas of IT internally. With Red Hat Ansible Tower, users can define one master workflow that ties different areas of IT together - including infrastructure, cloud, networks, security and more - to cover a hybrid infrastructure without being stopped at specific technology silos.
